It’s a family affair – Swansea break transfer record to reunite Ayew brothers

One deadline day deal that was completed, as reported by talkSport, was the re-signing by Swansea City of Andre Ayew from West Ham for a club record fee of £18 million.

That reunites him with his younger brother Jordan who currently plays for Swansea having signed from Aston Villa a year ago, although the pair have never played for the Welsh club together.

28-year old Ayew was sold by Swansea to West Ham for £20.5 million in the summer of 2016, and he scored 9 goals in 43 appearances for the Hammers, although he failed to hold down a regular first-team place in East London.

Both brothers represent the Ghanaian national team.

In his place, West Ham have signed Preston striker Jordan Hugill in a £10 million deal, with the 25-year old joining after the Championship side decided they could not stand in the player’s wish to play Premier League football.

Andy is an exiled English football fan living in Cyprus. He loves all sports but football is his abiding passion, and he still has dreams every now and then about scoring the winning goal in a Wembley Cup Final, even though his playing days are long gone. He follows most major leagues, across Europe at least, and has a favoured team in each. When he’s not watching, listening, reading or downloading podcasts about football, he spend his time worrying about his beloved Arsenal.
