Jordan Ayew has surpassed Tony Yeboah as the highest-scoring Ghanaian in the English Premier League after scoring for Crystal Palace in a 2-0 win at Bournemouth.
Leeds legend Yeboah racked-up his 24-goal tally during a three-year stint at Elland road.
His mark has been bested by Ayew, who now has 25 goals in five years in England’s top-flight. The goal was his ninth of the season for Palace.
Ayew, 28, has also had stints with Aston Villa and Swansea since moving to England in 2015.
Below are the top five Ghanaian scorers in the Premier League history:
1. Jordan Ayew – 25 goals
2. Anthony Yeboah– 24 goals
3. Andre Ayew – 21 goals
4. Michael Essien – 17 goals
5. Asamoah Gyan – 10 goals
Ayew is now just three goals away from equalling his best-ever scoring campaign of 12 goals with Lorient in 2015.
