Besiktas showing interest in Ghana’s Andre Ayew

The Turkish top-flight are hoping to enroll the midfielder on loan from relegated Swansea City

Turkish side Besiktas currently have Swansea City and Ghana midfielder Andre Ayew on their radar ahead of the new season, with a loan move likely to be reached, according to club president Fikret Omran.

The 28-year-old is among the players expected to leave the relegated Premier League side as they prepare for life in the Championship.

“The player’s agent has said that Andre Ayew’s future will be decided soon so now we’re starting to hear some noise [from our supporters] to discuss a potential transfer, as they want him on loan,” Besiktas president Fikret Omran said.

“We'll do our best and see what happens in the future but he's a good player and every club would like to have him.”
