Andre Ayew hopes he can help Swansea City’s exciting attacking additions build on their encouraging start to life in SA1.

The experienced Ghanaian, 30, and Liam Cullen have been joined by Jamal Lowe, Morgan Gibbs-White and Viktor Gyokeres in recent weeks as the Swans have bolstered their forward options.

Ayew, Swansea’s top scorer last season with 18 goals in all competitions, struck up a productive understanding with Rhian Brewster and Conor Gallagher over the second half of last term as Steve Cooper’s side earned a place in the play-offs.

And the forward hopes to form a similar on-field bond with the trio of new arrivals, having already been impressed by what they have to offer.

"We're still working a lot on that understanding. We're getting to know our movements,” said Ayew.

“Before, I was playing with Rhian and Conor most of the time, they knew exactly how I moved but it took time.

“We're still only four games in and we're starting to understand our movements.

“Morgan has great quality, Jamal similarly - he's a different sort of player but brings something different to the team. I'm very happy with what we have brought in so far.

“Viktor also showed what he can do - he's strong and powerful.

“I need to find a way to put them in the best situations to be able to show what they can do. By doing that, it will also give me the chance to keep playing well.”
