    Ghana star Andre Ayew has finally put pen to paper by signing a four-year contract for the Welsh Club Swansea City.

    Ayew, 25, joins the club on a free transfer after leaving his boyhood club Marseille, where he spent almost ten seasons from 2006 until 2015.

    Ayew won the BBC African Footballer of the Year while playing for Marseille and scored 52 goals in 181 appearances for the French club and has 62 caps for his country.

    Swansea were compelled to get a replacement for Wilfried Bony who joined Manchester City in January.

    Ayew’s departure from Marseille brings to an end his family’s 28-year association with the club.

    His father, Abedi Pele, signed in 1987 and was part of their Champions League-winning team in 1993.

    Younger brother Jordan also started his career at the State Velodrome, before joining Lorient.

    Ayew was on the radar of clubs like Arsenal, AS Roma, Liverpool, Tottenham Hotspur, as well a QPR who were relegated from the top flight, in January.
