Ghana striker Jordan Ayew is one of several players being tipped to leave EFL Championship side Swansea City.

The Welsh club suffered relegation from the Premier League at the end of the 2017/18 season and will be looking to rebuild under incoming manager Graham Potter.

Ayew has been on the Swans’ books since early 2017 and was one of their few strong performers through last season, with the forward scoring 11 goals in 44 appearances across all competitions.

The Black Stars player joins the likes of goalkeeper Fabianzki, Ashley Williams, Nathan Dyer and his elder brother Andre Ayew as those most likely to be sold by the club.

Jordan Ayew has been linked with a move to Liverpool and Scottish giants Glasgow Celtic, with his release clause set at a reported £14million.

Ayew, who was born in France, began his club career with Olympique Marseille and made his professional debut in late 2009.

He also represented Sochaux and Lorient in Ligue 1 before signing with Aston Villa in 2015. He suffered relegation with the Birmingham club in 2016, though he was their top scorer through the season.

The 26-year-old also has over 40 caps for Ghana’s senior national side and was part of their squads at the 2012, 2015 and 2017 Africa Cup of Nations, as well as the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.
