Swansea City nearing striker sale with Premier League move on the cards

A report from the South London Press and Mercury has claimed that Swansea City striker Jordan Ayew is set to make a permanent move to Premier League side Crystal Palace this summer, after spending last season on loan with the club.

Upon Swansea City’s relegation to the Championship in the summer of 2018, it seemed highly likely that striker Jordan Ayew would be one of the many players to make a permanent move away from the Liberty Stadium. However, a permanent move failed to materialise and the Ghanaian joined Crystal Palace on a season-long loan deal.

One year later and it seems set that Ayew will now be making a permanent switch away from the Welsh side, with Crystal Palace his destination once again. The striker impressed Roy Hodgson last season and he has been keen to bring him back on a permanent basis.

Ayew makes the move to the Premier League side on a cut-price deal, with Swansea keen to sell the 27-year-old and Palace keen to bring him back, despite his highly underwhelming form. Ayew scored just two goals last season in 25 appearances across all competitions, playing more of a backup role for Christian Benteke.

The Ghanaian leaves Swansea having joined the club back in January 2017 from Aston Villa. In his time with the Swans, he played 58 times, scoring 12 goals and laying on six assists along the way. With a move agreed and all parties involved in the deal keen for the sale/ purchase to go through, the confirmation of Ayew’s departure seems imminent.
