Fenerbahce not willing to sign Andre Ayew permanently

Fenerbahçe have decided against signing Andre Ayew on a permanent basis with the forward set to return to Swansea City at the end of the season, understands.

Manager Ersun Yanal has told the club's board the 29-year-old is no longer part of his long-term plans, meaning he will return to England when his loan deal expires in the summer.

The Ghana international joined the Istanbul-based side on a season-long loan following the relegation of the Swans from the Premier League.

Ayew's future has come under the spotlight despite scoring four goals in 16 matches for The Yellow-Navy Blues.

Fenerbahce legend Ridvan Dilmen has surprisingly told the Turkish Super Lig side not to sign Ghana star Andre Ayew on a permanent basis.

During the last transfer window, the Super Lig side reached an agreement with Swansea so they could purchase the forward outright for €17m, but this no longer seems an option.

Fenerbahce are currently experiencing one of the worst seasons in their history and find themselves in a relegation fight going into the second half of the campaign.

Ayew is contracted to the Swans until June 2021.
