Andre Ayew eager to start games for West Ham

Black Stars deputy captain Andre Ayew believes he has fully recovered from a thigh injury which kept him out for the first two months of the campaign.

The attacking midfielder hobbled off in their season opener against Chelsea and has missed the Hammers inconsistent start to the season.

Andre, who since returning from injury has come on twice for the side in their games against Chelsea and Everton, wants to make the starting eleven in their next league game against Stoke City.

“The injury feels good and I am working hard. Things are going well and hopefully I can continue like this,” Ayew told WestHam TV

“It is up to the manager when I am ready to start a game but the most important thing is that we continue to work hard and try and win games. When the gaffer needs me I will be ready."

Ayew is the record signing for West Ham.
