West Ham’s Andre Ayew wants former side Swansea to avoid drop



West Ham’s Ghanaian forward Andre ‘Dede’ Ayew is hoping his former side Swansea City will avoid relegation from the English top-flight.

Ayew has fond memories of the Welsh side which brought him to the Premier League from France as a free agent prior to the beginning of the 2015/16 season.

During his stint with Swansea, the 27-year-old scored 12 goals in 34 appearances.

Swansea currently lies 18th in the PL table with 28 points and a disheartening -31 goal difference.

The Welsh side has only won two games in its last 10 games, losing seven in that run.

“For sure, I want them [Swansea] to stay up,” Ayew is quoted by The Sun.

“I went back to Swansea when West Ham played there and it was strange, I nearly went into the home dressing room.

“I was happy to see the fans. It is a club I really enjoyed.”

Ayew left Swansea for London side West Ham for a club record fee of £20.5 million.
