Jordan Ayew - Swansea City
The Ghana international says he made the right decision to continue his career with the Welsh outfit

New Swansea City acquisition Jordan Ayew has shed light on his decision to join the Premier League side.

The Ghanaian completed a three-and-a-half-year move on transfer deadline day last month after struggling for opportunities at former club Aston Villa, who play in the Championship.

The 25-year-old joined the Swans five months after his elder brother Andre departed the club.

"I think I made a wonderful choice," Ayew told Swans TV.

“I need stability and I think this is the perfect place for me to grow and improve in a lot of aspects. 

“I am so grateful to be here. It’s the next step in my career.

“I have been here several times in the past with my brother and I saw a lot of positive things.

“He spoke to me about the club and he said only good things. It didn’t take too long for me to make a decision.

“I always knew this team had quality players. The team had hard times last season, and this season didn’t start too well."

Ayew made his Swansea debut as a second half substitute in a 2-0 league triumph over Leicester City on Sunday.

The frontman moved to England in 2015 from French outfit Lorient, having earlier been on the books of Sochaux and Marseille.
