The 33-year-old arrives from Qatari side Al Sadd, where he had been playing since 2021 and made a major impact, scoring 15 goals in 21 league matches and leading the team to win the Qatar Stars League title last season.
Ayew, who is also the captain of the Ghana national team, has a wealth of experience in English football, having previously had spells at Swansea City and West Ham United. He is reunited with his former coach Steve Cooper, who he worked with at Swansea in 2019.
In a statement, Ayew expressed his excitement at joining Nottingham Forest, saying, "It’s a great feeling to sign for Nottingham Forest. Steve Cooper is someone who knows me very well and knows how to work with me both on and off the pitch. I know what I can bring to the team, I’m ready to give my all and make sure that we are able to stay in the Premier League."
Ayew brings a wealth of international experience to the Forest team, having won 113 caps and appearing in three World Cups, including the latest edition in Qatar. He will now join a Nottingham Forest side that is currently sitting 13th in the Premier League table with 21 points, just four points above the relegation zone.
The arrival of Ayew will be a huge boost to Nottingham Forest as they look to secure their Premier League status for another season.
The forward's experience and goalscoring ability will be a valuable addition to the team as they prepare to host Leeds United on Sunday in a crucial match for both sides. With Ayew on board, Nottingham Forest will be looking to climb up the table and secure their place in the top flight for another season.
