To have Andre Ayew with us at the end of the transfer window is great – Swansea chairman

Published on: 03 September 2019

Chairman for English Championship side, Swansea City, Trevor Birch has noted that having Andre Dede Ayew at the club following the closing of the European transfer window is great.  

The Black Stars captain has been at the center of several transfer speculations this summer over a possible move away from the lower division side in search of top-flight football action.

After playing a key role in the early campaign of the Swans in the ongoing season, Ayew finally opted to stay on and help the club battle for promotion into the English Premier League at the end of the camping.

In a recent statement to fans of the club, Swansea chairman Trevor Birch has praised Andre Ayew and Borja Baston for staying at the club despite several interests from other clubs.

He said, “The two unexpected bonuses have been Borja Baston and Andre Ayew. To see them still part of our squad when the European transfer window closed last night was great news for everyone associated with the club.

“That last sentence is not one I thought I would be writing! But as we know, football is a funny old game and there are many twists and turns along the way and you must be flexible to adapt to the changing circumstances”.

The Ghanaian international has been impressive for Swansea in the early stages of the 2019/2020 season. So far he has managed to bag two goals and also has two assists to his name in all competitions.
