Ghana’s Dede Ayew To Remain At Swansea City

Ghana international Andre Ayew has announced that he will be committing his future to Swansea City despite Monday’s European transfer deadline.

Ayew scored 12 goals from approximately 35 Premier League appearances before he signed for West Ham United for a fee in the region of £20.5 million back in 2016.

However, the Black Stars forward joined Fenerbahce on a loan spell upon his return to Swansea in 2018 when they were relegated to the English Championship.

The 29-year-old has been heavily linked with moves to Lazio, Werder Bremen and Schalke 04 to name a few but he revealed that he will remain with the Swans and see the challenge through.

“I’ll be honest and say I have had a number of offers from some major clubs abroad,’’ he told the club’s official website.

“The club was aware of the options but made it clear they wanted me to stay.

“I’m really enjoying my football at Swansea and I’d like nothing more than to stay part of this squad.

“Everyone at the club has welcomed me back with open arms from my loan spell at Fenerbahce and I really believe in what the head coach (Steve Cooper) and the club are trying to achieve.

“The players want me around and I like the boss’s ideas and plans. I think that shows with the excellent start we’ve made to the season.

“We are top of the league and I want to try and help the squad stay there.

“The fans have also been amazing with the reception they have given me and I’m really looking forward to repaying the faith they have shown in me.

“I feel at home here and sometimes you have to go with what your heart is telling you. I believe we can achieve great things. I’m ready to continue and go for it.’’

Swansea City will host Nottingham Forest at Liberty Stadium after the international break on September 14.
