Andre Ayew reveals he turned down offers from ‘big clubs’ to join Swansea

The Ghanaian moved to the Premier League side in the summer after his contract with Marseille expired.

Before making the switch the 25-year-old was linked with several sides – including some in the Champions League.

But Ayew has revealed, after taking his time, that Swansea was the right choice for him at this stage of his career.

“Before I signed for Swansea, I had offers from big clubs,” Ayew told RMC.

“It was a choice that I really thought about. I took my time, weighed up the positives and the negatives, my age, what I want to achieve in football and how I was going to get there.

“With my family, I took the decision to go to Swansea, somewhere where I had the confidence of the manager and the president at 100 per cent.”
