Crystal Palace forward Jordan Ayew has contracted coronavirus and he has gone into self-isolation to treat himself.

The Ghana international revealed his health status on Sunday after missing Crystal Palace’s 1-1 draw against Brighton and Hove Albion at Selhurst Park.

Ayew recently returned to South London after going on international duty with the Black Stars in Turkey where he played in their international friendly fixtures against Qatar and Mali.

He has been a regular player in Roy Hodgson’s Crystal Palace set-up since the start of the season with four appearances in the Premier League.

The 29-year-old disclosed he is asymptomatic to Covid-19 but he has commenced the self-isolation at home.

“Sadly, I have tested positive for Covid-19 and have begun my quarantine in line with the health guidance,” Ayew tweeted.

“Thankfully, I am feeling fine and I do not have any symptoms. I will be cheering the boys on from home and look forward to being back on the pitch soon.”
