Swansea City manager Garry Monk delighted with Andre Ayew arrival
11th June 2015
Swans boss Garry Monk has expressed his delight at his first summer signing after Marseille's highly-rated forward Andre Ayew joined the club on a free transfer.
The Ghanaian international, 25, put pen to paper on a four-year contract at the Liberty Stadium despite interest from some of Europe's top clubs.
And Monk believes Swans fans should be excited about watching the former African Footballer of the Year in Barclays Premier League action next season.
"I'm extremely pleased we've been able to attract someone of Ayew's quality to this football club,'' declared Monk. "It highlights once again just how far this club has grown year on year, not just in Britain, but globally.
"I said when the season ended that I not only wanted to keep the quality we already had within the squad, but to add to it as well. We've certainly done that with Ayew's arrival.
"He will add quality, experience and versatility - which I like - to the squad. The fans should be really excited about seeing him play.
"When I spoke to him recently he was very football motivated and felt Swansea was the right club for him at the moment to develop his game and progress his career.
"We also felt he was the right fit for this club, so both parties are more than happy.''
