Crystal Palace forward Jordan Ayew has tested positive for coronavirus.

The 29-year-old was absent from the Eagles’ matchday squad for the 1-1 draw against Brighton in the Premier League on Sunday.

Ayew played for Ghana in friendlies against Mali and Qatar during the international break and Palace manager Roy Hodgson confirmed post-match the player had returned a positive test during the club’s latest set of tests.

In a Twitter post, Ayew said: “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.”
