Ghana star Andre Ayew says he wants to help Fenerbahce win the Turkish Super Lig title following his move from EFL Championship club Swansea City.

The Black Stars attacker was unveiled in Istanbul on Friday, having completed a mandatory medical and signed a one-year loan deal.

The 28-year-old says he is excited to play for the Turkish giants and want to help them win the Super Lig title.

“My only goal is to live in the championship with Fenerbahce,” Ayew explained upon his unveiling.

“The thing that excites me is the size of this club. My only goal is to be champion at the end of the season with Fenerbahce.

"Fenerbahce fans are the most excited about me right now. I still remember the match we played here in Marseille. The fans were amazing that day. I can’t wait to see them.

"I have been meeting Bafetimbi Gomis [who plays for Galatasaray] for a long time, I see, he will always be my brother, but we both will play for the win, now he’s playing for the other side of the city, it will be exciting to play against him.”

Asked whether he spoke to Stephen Appiah before finally making his mind up to move to Turkey, Ayew said: “I talked to him before I came here. He definitely told me to come here.

"I came to a new country, but before that, I played in many different teams and countries. I’ll be quick to get through the harmonisation process.

"Damien Comolli called me the day he came to the office of Fenerbahce and asked, ‘Would you like to come to a big team and a big project?’ I said, ‘Yes.’

“Since I was a kid, I told myself, ‘Andre, push the boundaries.’ If a footballer wants to achieve great achievements, he should be able to enter the eyes of his coach in different positions. But I like to play on the wings,” Ayew added.
