Swansea's Ayew focusing on progress, not Liverpool move

The Swans’ attacking midfielder is a well-known Reds supporter but says he is unmoved by speculation surrounding the club’s interest, claiming he is content in south Wales

Andre Ayew insists he is happy to remain at Swansea City amid interest from Liverpool.

The Ghanaian international has settled immediately into life in the Premier League, scoring 5 goals in his opening 10 league matches, after arriving from Marseille in the summer.

Ayew is a well-known supporter of the Anfield club and has caught the eye of several of England’s top sides but the 25-year-old attacker claims he is unwilling to consider a move away from south Wales.

“Things are said, but I am not thinking about that, it does not interest me,” he said in an interview with L’Equipe.

“I want to first continue to progress individually and collectively. I am happy at Swansea.”

After joining Marseille in 2006, Ayew admits he is enjoying the experience of playing in a new division but refused to deny he would one-day return to Stade Velodrome.

“I am not ruling anything out at all. If everything comes together, why not?,” he said.

“I will see what the future holds for me. In any case, once you get a taste of the Premier League I understand why, now, one struggles to play anywhere other than in this league, and it is not solely for financial reasons.”
