According to the BBC, Swansea City striker Jordan Ayew is refusing to train with the club, ahead of hope he can secure of a move to the Premier League before the transfer window slams shut.
Striker Jordan Ayew moved to the Liberty Stadium in 2017 and scored 11 goals for Swansea City over the course of the last campaign which ultimately wasn’t enough to keep the Welsh club in the top-flight, and saw them relegated back into the Championship.
The striker seems to be rebelling at present though, as he seeks a move back into the top-flight with Fulham and Crystal Palace both supposedly interested in a move for the forward ahead of the forthcoming Premier League season, which kicks off tomorrow.
Ayew was subject of an £8m bid from Fulham earlier on in the window; but the BBC suggest that the Welsh club value last seasons top-scorer at around £16m, if they are to part with him on deadline day.
Swans boss Graham Potter will want a deal wrapping up early for Ayew today if he is to sell one of his best assets, so he can reinvest his money as quickly and appropriately as possible in suitable replacements for the forward, to ensure that the Swans are as competitive as possible in the Championship during this forthcoming season.
The Welsh club play their first game back at the Liberty this season with Preston North End the visitors as the home side will look to make it back to back wins, after beating Sheffield United last weekend.
