Crystal Palace set to complete loan deal for Swansea's Jordan Ayew

Ed Dove is a writer and scout who has a deep and enduring passion for African sport, politics and literature.

Crystal Palace chairman Steve Parish has said that his club are "very pleased" with the signing of Jordan Ayew on a season-long loan from Swansea City.

Ayew who joined the Eagles on a season-long loan deal from relegated Swansea City on transfer deadline day has developed the unwanted reputation as a relegation magnet after suffering the drop with Sochaux (2014), Lorient (2014-15) and Aston Villa (2015-17) before moving to Wales.

It is believed that Ayew is now in London completing his medical, after the 26-year-old has engineered a move out of Swansea.

Provided the transfer fee is suitable, Swansea will not stand in his way as they want to get his massive wages off the books.

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

The Eagles announced the deal on their official website nearly two hours after the transfer window closed, with the Ghana worldwide becoming their fourth signing of the window. "It's a step up for me and I'm ready for the challenge and to get to where I think I can get to".

The Ghana global spent two seasons at Swansea City prior to their relegation from the Premier League, which will see them start this season in the Championship.
