The 28-year-old returned to Swansea in January, having left for West Ham for £20.5m in the summer of 2016.

Ayew re-signed for a club-record deal, for £18m, on a three-and-half-year contract and new Swans boss Graham Potter praised the forward for his professionalism.

Graham Potter says he knows he has a tough job in rebuilding the Swansea team but is looking forward to the challenge

"I understand the circumstances of the move - it' part of the restructure of us going forward," Potter told the club website.


"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."

The 28-year-old first signed for the Welsh club in 2015, from Marseille, and made 34 appearances and scored 12 goals.
