Swansea manager Steve Cooper says Ghana captain Andre Ayew might stay at the club, despite efforts to offload him over his huge salary.
The Swans budget for the English second-tier is small and the wages of Ayew and other senior players will cripple them financially in the coming seasons.
However, no suitors have come for Ayew yet and upon a meeting with the Ghanaian international on Thursday, the Swansea boss has revealed that he could stay.
“Andre’s back. He’s had a well-earned break after international duty. I met him this week, had a good conversation with him. He’s had to do his testing and get himself up to speed,” Cooper told Wales online.
“We need to make sure the performance staff are aware of where he’s at, physically and mentally as well.”
“He’ll join back with the group in training on Sunday. I look forward to working with him and hopefully he can play a part.”
Cooper further mentioned that the son of the Ghana legend is above the Championship and also has great impact at the club.
“Ayew is a player higher than the championship. Like similar questions with Borja, there’s obviously been a bit of recent history with these guys who have been here before,” He added.
“I can have understanding of that but focus on going forward. For me the first part of the process with Andre was to have conversation this week which went very well and I’m looking forward to him joining the group on Sunday.”
Ayew who has two more years on his Swansea contract spent last season on loan at Turkish Superlig outfit Fenerbahce.
