Swansea City forward Jordan Ayew is interesting Southampton and could make a permanent move away from the Welsh side for a modest fee.
The Ghanaian international spent the past season at Crystal Palace, however he struggled to establish himself as a regular for Roy Hodgson and scored just the one league goal.
Despite that, The Sun are reporting that Southampton will be keen on bringing Ayew in and they know that Swansea’s desperation to get him off the wage bill means he should be available for a relatively low price.
As well as the Saints, the report claims that Palace would be open to bringing the former Aston Villa man back as a squad option.
Either way, the 27-year-old’s departure from Swansea seems inevitable and he will be one of many players shown the door as they look to cut costs ahead of a second season back in the Championship.
This is a move that you would expect to happen and you can imagine that Swansea will want it to go through as soon as possible.
Ayew doesn’t want to be playing in the Championship and they don’t want to be paying his wages, so it’s a transfer that will suit all parties.
The news will please Swansea who must’ve thought Ayew’s poor form would’ve hindered their chances of offloading him permanently.
