Dede makes pledge

Dede Ayew Dede Ayew

Dede Ayew says he can get even better as he continues to settle into life in the Premier League.

Ayew struck his fifth goal in just 10 Premier League appearances since his summer switch to Swansea City to seal victory at Aston Villa last weekend.

The Ghana international pounced at the far post to turn home Kyle Naughton’s cross and complete a comeback victory.

It was the latest key contribution from a player who has been a revelation since moving on a free transfer from Marseille.

And the 26-year old reckons there is more still left in his locker.

“I believe if I continue working hard I can do much more,” said Ayew.

“It’s about getting to know the league better and getting to know the other players better. They are helping me and giving me confidence.

“I think I can get better.”

Ayew hit the ground running with a goal at Chelsea on the opening day.

And he went on to net against Newcastle, Manchester United and Spurs before his killer touch at Villa.

“It’s good because it’s not easy to go into the best league and score some goals,” added Ayew.

“If I’m getting the opportunity to score goals it’s down to the whole squad.

“The manager has a lot of confidence in me and the players give me a lot of responsibility.

“They’ve helped me a lot in a difficult league.

“I’m still learning about the league but I feel that I’m getting better. I’m getting to know the league better. In a few games I will be at my peak.”

Swansea were today still waiting for news of whether Federico Fernandez — or the club — will face any Football Association action after their stormy victory at Villa.

But it appears Swansea are hopeful they will not face any punishment for what went on.
