Much Ayew about nothing

Marseille forward Andre Ayew has played down reports linking him with a move to West Ham.

The 22-year-old Ghanaian - also known as 'Dede' - has spent the last five years in France but rumours from across the Channel have linked him with a winter transfer window move to east London.

However Ayew, who has also been watched by Liverpool recently revealed that he had heard nothing about West Ham's interest in him and younger brother Jordan, 21, bar speculation in the media.

"We are very interested in playing abroad one day in our career," he said. "There is no official bid from West Ham but if there is a possibility of one arriving, we will speak to our advisors. West Ham are an excellent team."

The French-born forward - son of former African Footballer of the Year Abedi Pele - has already made more than 100 appearances for Marseille in Ligue 1 despite not reaching his 23rd birthday until next month.

He also featured for Ghana in the 2010 World Cup Finals, in which the Balck Stars reached the quarter finals of the competition.

Younger brother Jordan is also a striker and has been at Marseille since 2006. he signed his first professional contract with the club three years later since when he has made more than 70 first team appearances.
