Swansea City have signed Ghana Black Stars and Aston Villa forward Jordan Ayew in a deal that sees Wales international Neil Taylor move in the opposite direction.
Jordan has been instrumental in Ghana’s great performance at the ongoing Afcon in Gabon scoring a goal and getting an assist.
Swansea will pay up to £5m – plus Taylor – for the Ghana international who has signed a three-and-a-half year deal at the Liberty Stadium.
As he prepares to play Cameroon in the semi finals tomorrow (Thursday ) the move will definitely help settle the player who is expected to play an integral role in the do or die game.
Ayew is the brother of former Swansea forward Andre Ayew.
“I’m sure his brother has given him the inside track on the club,” said Swans head coach Paul Clement.
“He is a very good acquisition. He’s versatile and dynamic to attack the lines and get in behind defences.
