The 31-year-old will be joining the 7th club of his illustrious career which has seen him play in France, England and Turkey.
He left Swansea for free after losing 2-0 to Brentford in the Championship play-off final.
The Black Stars captain was Swansea’s top scorer for the past two seasons, with 35 goals since returning from a loan spell at Fenerbahce.
The former Marseille player is expected to have a take-home salary of around $220,000 a month at his new club.
Ayew will now have the opportunity of working with Barcelona legend Xavi Hernandez, who is the coach of Al Sadd.
