Swansea City hold talks with Ghana forward Andre Ayew; move to Premier League imminent

Ghana forward Andre Ayew has held talks with Swansea City about a possible move to the Liberty Stadium, BBC Wales Sport has learned.

Talks will continue on 10 June when the player could also have a medical.

The 25-year-old’s contract with Marseille expired in June. He scored 52 goals in 181 appearances for the French club after joining them in 2006.

Swansea need to bolster their attacking options having lost Wilfried Bony to Manchester City in January.

His short-term replacement, Nelson Oliveira, has returned to Benfica following his loan spell at the Welsh club.

Ayew’s departure from Marseille brings to an end a 28-year association that his family have with the club.

His father, Abedi Pele, signed for the Ligue 1 club in 1987 and was part of their Champions League-winning team in 1993.

Younger brother Jordan also started his career at the State Velodrome, before joining Lorient.

Ayew, a former BBC African Footballer of the Year, had talks with Queens Park Rangers in January but they came to nothing.

In May the Ghanaian said he was weighing up options to join clubs in England, Italy and Germany and admitted the Premier League is a huge attraction for him.
