Ghana attacker Jordan Ayew will return to Olympique Marseille after the 2014 World Cup, an insider close to the player has told leading football news website,


The 22-year-old was farmed out to relegated Sochaux Montbelliard for the second part of the French Ligue 1 season and was linked with a move away from the Stade Velodrome but a close confidant of the attacker has confirmed the striker will stay.

Jordan’s overly performance for Sochaux saw him rake 5 goals in 17 Ligue 1 appearances and incoming Marseille manager Marcelo Bielsa has asked to take a look at the player in pre-season before deciding on his future.

While the striker and Marseille want a return, English sides Hull City and Newcastle United are mentioned as likely candidates for his signature.
