Paul Clement believes their new acquisitions have not done badly so far

Swansea City manager Paul Clement says he is impressed by the performance of his January signings, which include Ghana's Jordan Ayew.

The 25-year-old joined from Championship side Aston Villa, as part of an exchange deal, which saw Neil Taylor move in the opposite way.

In addition, the Jack Army paid an undisclosed fee for the frontman, who signed a deal which lasts until summer 2020.

“I think they [January signings] have all had an impact," Clement said, as reported by his club's official website.

"I was pleased with what Luciano Narsingh did in his first start last weekend.

“He tried in the second half but that’s normal when you haven’t played.

“Jordan Ayew has been very reliable when he’s come on, and Martin Olsson and Tom Carroll are both very good footballers, who I am really pleased to have at the club.

“I think Martin, Tom and Gylfi Sigurdsson are coming up with a very nice combination down that left side.”

Having delayed his arrival at the club upon completing the move due to his participation at the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations in Gabon, Ayew has so far made three league appearances for Swansea, who currently sit 16th on the table.

The former Marseille and Sochaux striker is, however, yet to make his league start for the Jack Army.
