Ghana striker Jordan Ayew has tested positive for coronavirus, the player has confirmed via social media.

The 29-year-old returned a positive test on Friday, having spent the international break with the Black Stars.

Ayew who was Crystal Palace’s top scorer last season missed Sunday’s 1-1 draw with Brighton.

British government guidelines state that the player must self-isolate for 10 days and test negative before he can return to training.
Crystal Palace boss Roy Hodgson confirmed the player’s situation after his side’s game with Brighton.

“I don’t know [when we’ll have him back],” said Hodgson.

“We have to follow the relative government and Premier League guidelines before we see him again.

Ayew also took to Twitter to share the news.

Sadly, I have tested positive for Covid-19 & have begun my quarantine in line with the health guidance.

Thankfully, I am feeling fine & do not have any symptoms 🙏🏾

I will be cheering the boys on from home & look forward to being back on the pitch soon 💪🏽🔴🔵

Stay safe 🙌🏾♥️
