Andre Ayew declares himself fit for Swansea City debut against Burnley


The Ghanaian re-joined the Jack Army on January transfer deadline day after failing to make the mark at West Ham this season

Ghana midfielder Andre Ayew believes he has now recovered from a troublesome hamstring injury he sustained and ready to feature for Swansea City ahead of their Premier League game against Burnley on Saturday at the Liberty Stadium.

The 28-year-old who has been struggling with injuries recently opted to sign for the Welsh club once again after falling down the pecking order in David Moyes’ setup at West Ham.

“I have had a full week of training and feel ready but we will have to see – it will be up to the boss,” Ayew told his club’s website.

“I am excited to have this second opportunity with Swansea. I am 28 and still have a lot to give.

“The team have put together a great run in the last few weeks and I hope to help build on that with the games we have in the coming weeks.”

Swansea City are without a defeat in their previous four games played in all competitions but are struggling to beat the drop in the Premier League and Ayew insists they will achieve their target.

“You are always under pressure in life, but we have a great club with great fans,” he said.

“There are a lot of people behind our team. I am confident, but we must not be afraid to take challenges.

“We want to stay in the Premier League and as a team, we are going to do everything to make sure we achieve that,” he added.

Ayew will have the opportunity to play with his younger brother Jordan, for the first time at club side in almost five seasons, if he is selected by coach Carlos Carvalhal.
