Newcastle United have offered André Ayew a pre-contract

GFFN can confirm reports coming from Le 10 Sport yesterday that Newcastle United have offered Marseille attacking midfielder André Ayew a pre-contract.

The Ghanaian international and AFCON finalist has been in talks with a number of Premier League sides including Liverpool and Everton, but Newcastle, aware of the immense competition they face to sign the player this summer, have offered the player a 4 year contract with a salary worth around €2.1m per year net. 

According to Le 10 Sport, Wolfsburg have also offered the player a pre-contract, and indications from an agent well-placed in Germany speaking to GFFN yesterday evening back up this claim. 

AS Roma are also reportedly very interested in the player, so to are Borussia Dortmund, but neither has offered Ayew a pre-contract at the time of writing. André Ayew is expected to receive more offers in the coming weeks, including a second contract extension proposal from Marseille.

Ayew has yet to reject of accept any of the offers on the table and would ideally like to wait until at least April before considering his future. Ayew has had a difficult start to 2015 on a personal level, having struggled with the near miss at this year’s AFCON particularly.
