Swansea coach slams want-away Ayew for refusing to train

Swansea coach slams want-away Ayew for refusing to train

"I am very pleased to be here", he told the club's official website.

Crystal Palace have reached an agreement to sign Jordan Ayew on loan from Swansea City until the end of the season. "It's been a long transfer window but finally I got a move", said Ayew.

The Ghana worldwide refused to return to training as he tried to push his move through. "I am looking forward to playing with the boys and meet the fans, and hopefully it'll be a good season".

However, no one has come close to meeting Palace's £70million evaluation so far.

Ayew has been relegated from the Premier League twice in the last three years, dropping out of the top flight with Swansea last season having also suffered the same fate during his spell at Aston Villa.

"So, Its a step for me and I am ready for the challenge and I am ready to get to where I think I can get to, so that is why I am here today and I think with the manager, I can get to where I want to".

The last five teams the 26-year-old has been at have all been relegated, which does not bode well for Palace.

The Eagles announced the deal on their official website nearly two hours after the transfer window closed, with the Ghana global becoming their fourth signing of the window.

Crystal Palace offered 8 million pounds for the Ghanaian attacker, but it was rejected by the Swans, but they have now acquired the player on a season long loan for the upcoming Premier League season.
