Swansea City boss provides transfer update on ‘exemplary’ Andre Ayew

Swansea City manager Steve Cooper said there will be transfer talks with Andre Ayew at the end of the season to decide his future.

Ayew joined the Swans on a three-year deal from West Ham United in 2018, and he is in the final year of his contract at the club.

Ahead of their final game of the season on Wednesday, Cooper disclosed the Ghana international is focused on helping Swansea City make the play-offs as they target victory against Reading first before discussing his future.

"I'm sure we'll have that conversation again, but now it's just about Wednesday,” Cooper was quoted as saying by Wales Online.

"He's fully focused on that and I'm fully focused on that. Let's not let any thoughts interfere with getting it right on Wednesday."

Aside from his leadership role, Ayew has been a key figure in Cooper's side this season with his attacking presence that's seen him return 15 goals and six assists in 43 Championship outings.

The Welsh tactician lauded the qualities of the 30-year-old and his professionalism.

"I can't speak highly enough of him. He's not on his own, with Nathan [Dyer], Wayne [Routledge], Kyle [Naughton], Erwin [Mulder]," he added.

"The older players are a real credit to themselves and the football club.

"Andre's been really great hasn't he? You've all seen him on the pitch and the contribution he's made and the energy levels that he gives. He leads by example when he's playing and when he's training.

"He's a very good person and a really good professional. It's been brilliant to see how a top player operates, so I can't speak highly enough of him. I just hope he does the business again on Wednesday.”
