Swansea City manager, Steve Cooper, has admitted that Black Stars captain, Andre Ayew’s level is above playing in the English Championship.
The former West Ham United forward was a star performer for the Jack Army throughout the season but unfortunately failed to qualify to play in the EPL next season after losing the play-off final to Brentford.
Ayew, 30, scored 18-goals in all competitions for the Swans and provided seven assists to his name.
Cooper, who has been an admirer of his side’s vice-captain, speaking to the media admitted to the quality of the Ghana star and said he would hold talks with him to discuss his next line of action.
“I think that’s a conversation I and Andre need to have,” Cooper told the media when asked about Andre’s future.
“I would like nothing more than for Andre to be playing with us again next season,” he added.
“We have seen the real level of player he is this year; with the goals he has scored and the impact he has had on and off the pitch. It’s been brilliant to work with him.
“But I understand Andre is a better player than the Championship. That’s a matter of fact and I am sure he will have offers to do that.”
The 40-year-old former Welsh international continued:
“We need to have a good conversation over the next couple of days. We trust each other 100 per cent and in the end, we will come to a resolution that’s right for everybody.”
