Andre Ayew named Swansea best player for October

Ghana international Andre Ayew has been voted Best Player of his club Swansea City for the month of October.

The former Marseille ace was picked ahead of Welsh defender Neil Taylor and England midfielder Jonjo Shelvey for the monthly accolade.

Ayew scored two goals during the month of October in four league games. He contributed one in his side’s 2-2 draw with Tottenham and claimed the winning goal when the Swans humbled Jordan Ayew’s Aston Villa 2-1.

The 25-year-old joined the Welsh club last June as a free agent, signing a four-year-deal. He won the same award in August, his first active month with Swansea.
