Swansea boss confirms Crystal Palace talks over Jordan Ayew

Swansea City boss Graham Potter has admitted that talks with Crystal Palace over Jordan Ayew are ongoing.

Ayew is on Palace's list of transfer targets ahead of the closure of the window for Premier League clubs to sign players next week.

Roy Hodgson is aiming to add to his squad and Potter has admitted that Swansea and Palace are talking.

Asked about Ayew moving to Selhurst Park, Potter told Sky Sports' Michelle Owen: "The clubs are talking."

It remains to be seen if the two clubs can reach an agreement on the 26-year-old, who joined Swansea from Aston Villa in 2017.

Ayew could not help Swansea survive in the Premier League last term and may be keen to avoid the prospect of Championship football which a move to Crystal Palace would make happen.

He came through the youth ranks at Marseille, but made his name at Lorient.

Ayew made the move to England with Aston Villa in 2015.
