Swansea City AFC deputy captain Andre Ayew has made his intentions known concerning his contractual concerns at the Championship side as the season comes to a close today, Wednesday, July 22nd.
Ayew spent a season on loan at Turkish side Fenerbahçe last season and returned to the Jack Army this season and undoubtedly has been a pivot for his side in their push for Championship playoffs spot and the Ghana International could be on his way out should Swansea fail to gain promotion to the Premier League due to his wages at the club.
But Swansea’s 17-goal top scorer, who has a year left on his contract, says what is to come for him next season is off the agenda for now.
“At the moment I’m not thinking about that,” said forward Ayew.
“I’m just thinking about getting three points (at Reading) on Wednesday and hopefully Hull City winning. That’s what I want. I’m not thinking beyond that at all.”
Swansea, in seventh, are three points behind sixth-placed Cardiff and will reach the play-offs if they win at Reading and the Bluebirds are beaten at home by relegation-threatened Hull.
When asked if he would like to remain at Swansea next season, Ayew said: “I’m happy here. I love it and I have a great bond with the club and fans.
“When I came back it was after an injury and then we went down. It was a difficult period, but this season I was able to put things back into order and make sure the fans know I’m back.
“I’m happy for that and they’re happy with me and that bond is back. I’m a player who needs that feeling around me to give my best.
“Having that from the Swansea fans is very important to me.
“It’s something we’ll sit down and think about when the time is right, but at the moment I’m thinking of trying to make the play-offs.”
The Ghana international is Swansea City’s top scorer this season with 17 goals and eight assists in all competitions.
