West Ham fans charge on club over rejected Andre Ayew offer

West Ham United fans have vented their frustration over the club's refusal to cash in on out-of-favour Ghana international Andre Ayew after the club rejected a £14million offer from Swansea City last week.

Ayew left the Liberty Stadium in August 2016 for the Hammers, who paid close to £20m for the player who had scored 15 times in his debut Premier League season.

However, he has struggled to establish himself as a first-team regular at West Ham since he joined.

He is a priority target for new Swansea manager Carlos Carvalhal but their opening bid of £14 million was turned down, with West Ham considering whether to keep the Ghana international after Andy Carroll's injury.

Following the West Ham's refusal to accept the bid from Swansea, fans have taken to twitter to react to the club's decision to reject the offer, angrily suggesting that the decision is 'plain stupid' and that the club should be cashing in on both players whilst even messaging co-owner David Gold to share their frustration at keeping two bit-part, underwhelming players rather than offloading them and reinvesting in the squad.
