JOHN Carver has responded to reports linking Newcastle United with a move for Andre Ayew.

The club has reportedly tabled an offer to the Olympique Marseille midfielder, who is out of contract in the summer.

Ayew, 25, is being tracked by a number of clubs at home and abroad.

And Newcastle head coach Carver is well aware of the Ghana international’s ability.

“I know about him because I watch a lot of European football,” said Carver.

“But there’s a process in the club. I’ll be part of that, and if and when it happens you’ll be the first to know.”
