Jordan Ayew set to join Crystal Palace on loan

The drama surrounding Jordan Ayew’s transfer from Swansea appears to be coming to an end with BBC's David Ornstein reporting that “ Crystal Palace have finalised deal to sign Swansea forward Jordan Ayew on season-long loan, medical today.

Takes Loftus-Cheek role but also option up front. No more #CPFC arrivals expected but exits are with offers on table for likes of Puncheon & Riedewald (not going to #Swans)."

Crystal Palace had been linked with a move for last season's top scorer at the Liberty Stadium all summer but that had appeared to collapse until the player went AWOL in order to force Swansea listen to bids for him.

Ayew, 26, will depart alongside brother Andre Ayew, who completed a loan to Fenerbahce a few days ago.

Sources close to Ayew are saying he will leave the Liberty Stadium by the close of the transfer window on 9 August.
