Swansea City have completed the signing of Aston Villa forward Jordan Ayew in an exchange deal which sees Neil Taylor join the Championship club.
The Swans will also pay an undisclosed fee as part of the transfer, with Ayew signing a three-and-a-half year contract at the Liberty.
Ayew is currently with Ghana on African Cup of Nations duty, and won’t be available for the Swans until his national team’s commitments in the tournament are over. The Black Stars next face Cameroon in the semi-final on Thursday, while the final takes place this Sunday.
The 25-year-old, who is the brother of former Swan Andre Ayew, scored 10 goals – including one against his new club – in 58 games for Villa, who he joined from French side Lorient in July 2015.
“I’m sure his brother has given him the inside track on the club,” said Swans head coach Paul Clement.
“He is a very good acquisition. He’s versatile and dynamic to attack the lines and get in behind defences.
“He will certainly give us something different to what we’ve got.”
