Cape Town - Ghana forward Jordan Ayew may leave struggling Aston Villa at the end of the season, reports in England suggest.

Having arrived at Villa Park with much fanfare from the Ligue One, the forward has been unable to power his team to a respectable position and they've been dire.

The 24-year old former Lorient attacker is now expected to be part of an incoming summer team rebuilding exercise. Reports say other players expected to be shipped out include Jordan Veretout, Jordan Amavi and Charles N'zogbia.

The club spent more than 50 million euro in the summer but still find themselves bottom of the table with 16 points. There are still nine games to go.

The son of Ghana legend Abedi Pele has five goals to his name this season.
