Aston Villa manager Tim Sherwood has tipped new signing Jordan Ayew to become a star. 

According to Sherwood, the claret and blue have “got a star in the making” on their hands with Jordan.

In an interview with the club’s television network, AVTV, he praised the 23-year old for his strengths and hoped that Jordan can use the opportunity to develop.
 
"Jordan can play a number of positions. He can play on the left side of the attack or as a number nine. He’s got good pace, strength and his all-round game is what we’re looking for.

"He’s a good age with a very good pedigree. A lot of clubs were looking to take him but he decided that his future lied here and we think we’ve got a star in the making there."
 
Ayew reportedly refused competing offers in favour of Villa because of manager Tim Sherwood, who he adores.

The youngest member of the Ayew football dynasty, the Black Star signed for the Villa Park outfit last month from French side Lorient in an £8 million deal to become the fifth Ghanaian player to join England’s top flight this season.
 
At Lorient, he scored 12 goals and he is expected to fill the gap left behind following Christian Benteke’s move to Liverpool.

Jordan is likely to feature in Villa’s season opener against compatriot Christian Atsu's Bournemouth.
