Jordan Ayew
Swansea City manager Graham Potter says Ghanaian attacker Jordan Ayew is not part of their plans at present.

Ayew has not trained with the EFL Championship club this week, amid uncertainty over his future.

The Black Stars forward has been linked with a move to Premier League sides Crystal Palace and Fulham, though time is running out for a transfer to be completed.

The Cottagers reportedly bid £8m for his services back in June, but Swansea are believed to value the player at around twice that sum.

"There's no further news on Jordan - he's just not been here," Potter told BBC Sport Wales.

"That tells you that he's not part of what we're trying to do, by his own actions.

"It's whether we can get a good enough deal for the club. Otherwise, that's going to be an interesting time for him."

Ayew joined the Swans in 2017 from Aston Villa and was their top scorer last season with 11 goals, though his efforts were not enough to prevent the Welsh side suffering relegation to the Championship.

He was not involved in the matchday squad this past weekend as Swansea opened their league campaign with a win at Sheffield United.

Jordan’s elder brother Andre has also left Swansea, having agreed to a loan move to Turkish Super Lig club Fenerbahce.
