Atsu delighted as more Ghanaian players join EPL
Black Stars winger Christian Atsu has expressed delight over the number of Ghanaian players in the English Premier League after Jordan Ayew sealed a five-year deal with Aston Villa.
?I want to see more Ghanaians in the English premier league, I think it will help improve the National team and I want to see that everyone is successful here to help the national team go forward.?
The Bournemouth winger and Leicester City?s defender Jeffery Schlupp were the only Ghanaian players in the English league last season but the signing of Dede and Jordan Ayew for Swansea and Aston Villa respectively has increased the number of regular Black Stars players in the EPL to four.
?This is the most exciting league in the world and its every player?s wish to play [here] so I pray most of my colleagues will also join the Premier League,? Astu told Starr FM in an interview.
Atsu joined English Champions Chelsea in 2013 but has failed to command first team action as he has been sent on two loan spells at Vitesse Arheim and Everton.
The 23-year-old will be embarking on his third loan stint at newly promoted side Bournemouth this season.
He has been capped 40 times for Ghana and scored nine goals.
