Jordan Ayew has joined Crystal Palace on a season-long loan deal.

The forward is to spend the 2018-19 at Selhurst Park after Swansea City agreed a package which will see Palace pay a loan fee.

Ayew’s future has been the subject of much speculation since the Swans were relegated from the Premier League last season, and it is Palace who have won the race to secure his signature.

The 26-year-old departs having made 58 appearances for the Swans since arriving from Aston Villa in January 2017.

He has scored 12 Swans goals, 11 of which came last season when he was named players’ player of the year at the Liberty Stadium.

Ayew is contracted at the Swans until the summer of 2020.

His older brother Andre exited SA1 last month, joining Turkish side Fenerbahce on a year-long loan deal.
