Black Stars captain Andre Ayew has been listed among six other players who will depart from Nottingham Forest after their contract with the club expires.
Andre Ayew’s contract will expire on June 30, 2023. However, the club has stated that it will not sign another deal with the player and that he will be released as a free agent.
This news was announced by Nottingham Forest on Friday, June 2, 2023, in a statement they posted on their website, sighted by 1Family Radio.
“Nottingham Forest can confirm its retained list following the conclusion of the 2022–23 Premier League campaign. Six senior players’ contracts have come to an end: Andre Ayew, Cafu, Jack Colback, Jesse Lingard, Jordan Smith, and Lyle Taylor,’’ the statement noted.
The Black Stars striker joined the club in January of this year on a six-month contract following his departure from Al Sadd in 2022.
Ayew has played 13 matches since he joined the club, but he has failed to score a goal in any of them. Nevertheless, by helping the team finish 16th with 38 points, they were able to keep their Premier League status.
“The club would like to thank each player for their contributions during their time at The City Ground,’’ the club added.
