West Ham reject £14 million Swansea bid for striker

The Daily Telegraph reports that West Ham United have turned down a £14 million bid from bottom club Swansea City for striker Andre Ayew.

West Ham signed Ayew from the Welsh club in August 2016, and he has gone on to player 50 times for the Hammers in all competitions, scoring 12 goals. However, he is not currently first choice under manager David Moyes, and the London club may be willing to sell him for an and improved price, with Swansea almost certainly having to break the club record transfer fee of £15.5 million to resign the player.

However, one potential impediment to any deal is the ankle injury suffered by Andy Carroll which is likely to see him sidelined for a month. This may persuade the Hammers to keep Ayew as cover, especially as there are reports that Javier Hernandez may be on his way out of the club before the January window closes.
