Swansea on Wednesday said they have re-signed Ghanaian striker Andre Ayew from West Ham United in a deal the Welsh club have now said broke their transfer record.

Reports indicate that the deal was worth £18 million, rising to £20 million with add-ons, the same amount West Ham paid for him in 2016.

“Ayew has put pen to paper on a three-and-a-half-year contract at the Liberty Stadium,” Swansea said on their website on Wednesday.

The move reunited Ayew, 28, with his younger brother Jordan, who has been leading Swansea’s frontline in recent games.

Andre Ayew scored 12 goals in 34 appearances in his first spell at Swansea in the 2015/2016 season.
