The 26-year-old son of the celebrated African football legend, Abedi ‘Pele’ Ayew, spent last season on loan at Selhurst Park but is due to complete a medical once he returns from international duty with Ghana.

A penalty shootout defeat at the hands of Tunisia in the Round of 16 saw the Black Stars crash out of the Africa Cup of Nations on Monday night. Their exit is expected to hasten Ayew’s move to South London.

He remains the only member of the Ayew football family that has not found the net in encounters with Tunisia. His father, Abedi scored against Tunisia in a 2-1 win in 1996, while his brother Andre did the same in another 2-1 victory at the quarter finals of Africa Cup of Nations in 2012.

Another Ayew, Kwame scored a brace against Tunisia in a friendly match in January 2000.

Jordan Ayew scored two goals in 25 appearances last season, Sports Village Square gathered that the terms and a transfer fee of around £2.5m have already been agreed.

Meanwhile, Ayew’s brother Andre remains up for sale this summer, having spent last season on loan at Turkish giants Fenerbahce.

Chairman Trevor Birch is still keen to get him off the books in this window as he looks to further free up funds, although as things stand, Andre is set to return
