“I have always watched the Premier League,” Ayew told Swanseacity.net.
“When I was growing up in Ghana, it was always my dream to play here. I got the opportunity with Aston Villa. It didn’t work out really well for the team but I think it was okay for me, although you don’t see that when the team go down. It’s hard to enjoy it.
“But I always tried to do my best, that’s the truth, and I hope people could see that. Maybe that’s why I was given the opportunity to come to Swansea,” he said.
He added: “I spoke to my brother Andre Ayew and he told me to come here [when I wanted a move away from Aston Villa]. When Andre was playing here, I was here every week. I was always laughing at my brother because in Swansea, it was always raining. A year later, I am here! You cannot predict what will happen.”
Ayew has played eight times for Swansea since joining and is expected to start against Watford on Sunday as they seek to end a five-game winless streak.
