“My targets are to work hard for the team and to make and score goals,” Ayew told club website.

“I want to be an all-around player. I like to score goals; I like to make goals for my team-mates and I like to work defensively. I like to do everything.

“That’s the way I am – I am a team player. I am pleased on a personal note, it’s good confidence boost.

“It’s part of the game as a forward that you will miss chances. But the most important thing is that me and Tammy keep making chances and scoring goals, and also Fernando (Llorente) when he gets back.
