Black Stars captain Dede Ayew ready for Swansea City duties despite interest from clubs

Published on: 16 August 2019

Ghanaian international, Andre Dede Ayew has disclosed that he is ready to work hard to play a part for Championship side Swansea City in the ongoing season despite interest from clubs in France and Turkey.

The Black Stars captain has been at the center of transfer speculations and continues to be linked with a move away from England. He returned late to the English club and missed their opening game in the Championship last weekend.

Nonetheless, he was called upon to feature for his side when they locked horns with lower division side Northampton in the Carabao Cup where he emerged as the hero after bagging a brace to help them progress into the next round.

Speaking after starting off his season with Swansea despite growing transfer rumours, Andre Ayew shared that he will continue working hard to ensure he gets to play a part in subsequent matches.

“I'm a Swansea player and I am working hard for the games that are coming up. The gaffer has been clear and honest with me and I want to thank him for that.

“He's given me a lot of confidence and trust in the way that he speaks to me. I really feel like I'm welcome and that’s a good feeling.

''A lot of things have been said but, for me, what’s important is to work hard, try to get to full fitness and, if I’m here, go for it”, the formal U-20 World cup winner shared.

Ayew is likely to start for Swansea on Saturday, August 17, 2019, when they host Preston North End on matchday two.
