Swansea City have had a bid rejected by West Ham United for their former forward Andre Ayew.

Ayew left the Liberty Stadium in August 2016 for the Hammers, who paid close to £20m for a player who scored 15 goals in his debut Premier League season.

Swansea may need to break their £15.5m transfer record, paid to Atletico Madrid for Borja Baston in August 2016, to prise Ayew, 28, away from West Ham.

The Ghana international’s brother, Jordan, already plays for Swansea.

West Ham are currently short of options up front after Andy Carroll suffered an ankle injury that could keep him out for at least a month.

Manager David Moyes may also be reluctant to sell a player to a club that is one of their direct rivals to avoid Premier League relegation.
