Swansea striker in potential swap deal with Premier League side

Current Swansea City striker Jordan Ayew looks set to join his brother Andre in leaving the south Wales club, BBC Sport are reporting.

Andre Ayew left the club a few weeks ago, signing for Turkish side Fenerbahce on loan in attempt to reduce the Welsh club’s large wage bill.

Jordan Ayew, the younger of the two brothers, is rumoured to be interesting London club Crystal Palace, with Football Ghana reporting that the transfer could be part of a swap deal, with Jairo Riedwald potentially heading the other way.

The French-born Ghana international, 26, scored 11 goals for the Swans last season in all competitions, but couldn’t do enough to prevent his side from suffering relegation from the Premier League back down to the Championship.

The player rumoured to be heading from London to Wales, Jairo Riedwald, is a 21-year-old Dutch defensive midfielder who joined the Eagles along with fellow Dutch manager Frank de Boer. Palace paid £8m for his services last summer, but the three-time Holland senior international only managed seven starts in all competitions as he found chances in the first-team hard to come by – maybe a drop down a division might be what is needed to kick start the former Ajax youngster’s career once again.

Former Aston Villa player, Ayew, who has been capped 47 times at international level, is a former French champion. As an 18-year-old, when Ayew was coming through the ranks at Marseille, his hometown club, including scoring just five minutes in to his professional debut, as he came off the bench to score the equaliser away at Lorient on the way to a 2-1 victory.
