Ayew brothers named in Swansea squad despite transfer rumors

Black Stars forwards Andre Ayew and Jordan Ayew have been named in Swansea City manager Graham Potter's preseason tour team despite interests from other clubs.

The Ghana duo has attracted interested from several clubs in Europe, with Fenerbahçe close to signing a season-long loan deal with Andre who has also been linked with Besiktas.

Meanwhile, Jordan Ayew has been linked with Scottish giants, Celtic and Premier League club, Liverpool.

The Swans are due to fly out for an eight-day tour of Europe where they are expected to play two 60-minute games against FC Magdeburg and Genoa in Germany, before travelling to Austria to play friendlies against La Liga side, Eibar and Bundesliga side, SC Freiburg.

The Ayew brothers are expected to feature in these games as Swansea coach Graham Potter seizes the opportunity to access his side ahead of the upcoming Championship season.

Jordan, 26, was on terrific form last season as he scored 11 goals in 45 appearances and was named the club's Player of the Season, but his elder brother Andre managed just 12 appearances without a goal on his return to the Liberty stadium mid-season following an unsuccessful spell with West Ham United.
