Andre Ayew delighted with the opportunity to play for Swansea City again

​Ghana international Andre Ayew has revealed his delight in being back at Swansea City for the third time in his career. 

Ayew initially joined Swansea his contract with Marseille expired in 2015 and it wasn't to be renewed thereafter.

The 29-year-old scored 13 goals during his debut season for the Welsh club before joining West Ham United in the summer of 2016 for a fee that was in the region of £20.5m.

He was to rejoin Swansea for a club-record £18m fee in January 2018 however it wasn't enough and the side got relegated to the English Championship. 

A season-long loan move to Fenerbahce followed and few anticipated that Ayew would ever be seen in Swansea colours again.

"I am happy to be back," Ayew tells BBC Sport Wales. "I feel at home."

"There were a lot of possibilities for me to move."

"As soon as I got back I felt the desire from the manager, the players - they wanted me to stay - and for sure the fans. That was special for me.

He added, "When I felt that I started to think maybe we have to go for it again.

"We were talking about finding a solution with other clubs. I said if I don't find something which suits me 100 percent I am not going to move just to say I play in Ligue 1 or Serie A or the Premier League.

"The truth of the matter is a part of me wanted to stay here. A few days before the end of the market I told my agent: 'I have made my decision and I want to stay'."
