Jordan Ayew to wear no.19 jersey at Aston Villa
Ghana striker Jordan Ayew has been officially assigned the no.19 jersey at Aston Villa ? vacating the no.10 jersey he donned during pre-season.
The Ghana striker has had to abandon the iconic no.10 jersey which is being reserved in the hope of Emmanuel Adebayor?s arrival.
Ayew moved to Aston Villa a fortnight ago from Lorient for a reported amount of ?12m.
He used the no.10 jersey in his debut for the club during their pre-season game against Wolves.
The former Marseille man has now been officially handed the no.19 jersey following an announcement by the club on the eve of the commencement of the Premier League season.
Three numbers are left outstanding now at Aston Villa ? the no.10 jersey and the no.16 and no.20 previously worn by ex captain Fabian Delph and top goalscorer Christian Benteke respectively.
