Mohammed Kudus has revealed the role played by his Black Stars teammates Andre Ayew in his choice to join Premier League side West Ham United.
The 23-year-old completed his move to the Hammers on Sunday from Ajax Amsterdam in a five-year-deal.
Kudos becomes the third Ghanaian to play for the London-based club after John Paintsil and Andre Ayew.
Speaking in an interview, Kudus revealed his national teammates has been speaking highly of the club which breeds optimism for his future.
“Ayew has been speaking highly of West Ham,” said Kudus.
“John Paintsil is way older so I didn’t really get the chance to speak with him but Andre [Ayew] is still in the national team and he speaks a lot about his experiences in most clubs and West Ham is one of the clubs that he speaks highly of.”
The former FC Nordsjaelland player has been handed the No14 shirt which was formerly donned by Paintsil who featured for the Hammers between 2006 and 2008.
