Jordan Ayew has revealed how life as a Swansea City player has put a smile on his face – and helped him deliver on the pitch.

The striker, who has been hailed as one of the Premier League’s best forwards by Carlos Carvalhal, has spoken to this week’s Swans Show about the Premier League relegation fight, playing alongside big brother Andre and his own fine form.

Ayew tells how he and his family have felt content ever since he moved to the Liberty 15 months ago – and says that has helped him spearhead the Swans’ push for top-flight survival.

“I need to thank my family because I have had some difficult moments in my career,” the Swans’ 11-goal top scorer said.

“Now I am enjoying the moment because things are going well for me and the team are doing well.

“If it was two years ago when I was at Aston Villa, or when I was playing in the Championship, I wasn’t a happy player and I wasn’t a happy person.

“But since I came to Swansea I have been grateful and I have been happy. I am enjoying my life and that shows on the pitch.”
