Jordan Ayew Joins Crystal Palace

Recommended Posts

Now, whilst he has been nothing short of a disappointment since initially leaving France he would actually suit the way we play if we keep going with this "wingers turning in to forwards" tactic which seems to be working. I wouldn't expect him to be in the starting eleven but he would be a much needed option as our squad is pretty thin.

Turns out this is going to fail because we offered cash and Jairo Riedewald. Which is mental. Thankfully Jairo has no interest in leaving.

He's been saying all the right things and putting in the performances in pre season. There's a lot more to come from him. Glad he's turned this down.

Missing training so I expect him to move between now and the end of tomorrow

Jordan Ayew is moving closer to leaving Swansea City after refusing to train with the Championship team.

Ayew, 26, was the Swans' top scorer with 11 goals as they were relegated from the Premier League last season.

The Ghanaian has been linked with Crystal Palace and Fulham but the Welsh club have yet to receive a bid that matches their valuation.

"There's no further news on Jordan - he's just not been here," Swansea boss Graham Potter told BBC Sport Wales.

"That tells you that he's not part of what we're trying to do, by his own actions.

"It's whether we can get a good enough deal for the club. Otherwise, that's going to be an interesting time for him."

Ayew joined Swansea from Aston Villa in 2017 and, after a slow start at the Liberty Stadium, established himself in the first team last season.

Newly promoted Premier League side Fulham had an offer of £8m rejected for him in June, and it is thought the Swans value him at around twice that figure.

They are also looking to offload midfielder Sam Clucas, whose £8m move to Burnley collapsed after they failed to agree personal terms.

If Clucas leaves, Swansea hope to sign Brentford midfielder Ryan Woods in a transfer which would be worth between £6m and £7m.

Potter admits he must sell players in order to make such signings before the transfer window shuts on Thursday.

"There's an element of that. We need to be careful with what we're doing," he added.

"There's not an unlimited supply of funds so we have to rely on players going out as part of the restructuring, so that's a bit frustrating but it's part of the challenge."

Not too bothered about this one. He hasn't actually done anything in the last three years to suggest he shouldn't be playing at Championship and he seems to think it's beneath him. Would rather keep Riedewald instead of exchange him.
