Ghana star Andre Ayew is set for Swansea City debut against Burnley on Saturday.

The former Marseille attacker rejoined Swansea on the transfer deadline day in a club record deal and he is set to feature for the Swans when they take on Burnley.

The African star has been struggling with a hamstring injury during the last few weeks at West Ham, the good news has he completed a full training session at the start of this week.

Carlos Carvalhal’s men will be looking to extend their unbeaten run in the Premier League to five games on Saturday, Ayew hopes he can play a part.

“I have had a full week of training and feel ready but we will have to see – it will be up to the boss,” he said.

“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.”

Ayew will come to a side who are enjoying what is comfortably their best run of the season.

The Swans have lost just once in 10 games in all competitions, but still, have plenty of work to do if they are to remain in the Premier League.

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

“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.”
