Swansea attacker heads to Turkey on season-long loan

Andre Ayew: Joins West Ham on a 4-year-deal

Swansea striker Andre Ayew has joined Turkish club Fenerbahce on a one-year loan with a view to a permanent deal.

The 28-year-old rejoined the Swans from West Ham in January in a club-record deal on a three-and-a-half-year contract but his time in south Wales appears to be up.

Ayew left Swansea’s pre-season tour of Austria to undergo a medical ahead of his move to Turkey, which requires international clearance.

Manager Graham Potter told Swansea’s official website: “I understand the circumstances of the move – it’s part of the restructure of us going forward.

“From my perspective he has been brilliant. He has applied himself in training, supported what we are trying to do and been very professional.

“He has been a joy to work with and we wish him the best.”
