Andre Ayew set to return to Swansea City in summer

Ghana international Andre Ayew is set to return to Swansea City after Fenerbahce decided not to sign him, Footballghana.com can exclusively report.

The Turkish side will not sign the 29-year-old after scoring five goals in 36 appearances, hence the club does not think it's enough to secure his services permanently for a reported €17m fee.

Manager Ersun Yanal has told the club's board that Ayew is no longer part of his long-term plans and this means he will return to England when his loan deal expires in the summer.

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

Fenerbahce president Ali Koç was keen to sign the former Ghana U-20 star permanently but seems to have changed his mind after his dismissal performance in the second half of the campaign.

Ayew is one of the highest earners at Fenerbahce but has struggled to make the starting XI in recent weeks and his future has come under the spotlight.

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.

Ayew's contract with the Swans will run until June 2021.
