According to reports in the printed edition of The Sun on December 5, via Wales Online, Swansea City are hoping to re-sign forward Andre Ayew from West Ham United in a cut-price deal.
The Ghana international only left the Liberty Stadium to join the Irons in a £20m deal in the summer of 2016, but The Sun says that he is already surplus to requirements under new boss David Moyes.
The report adds Paul Clement’s Premier League strugglers are keen to bring the 27-year-old back to Wales in a cut-price deal, and they could make their move during the January transfer window with their place in the top flight at risk as things stand.
Meanwhile, Newcastle United will also be worried about their own chances of staying up after taking just one point from the last 18 available, and the Tyneside outfit now lie just three places and five points above the bottom three.
Manager Rafa Benitez will already be planning potential additions for the New Year, and bringing the Ghanaian attacker to St James’ Park could prove to be a shrewd move.
