Dede Ayew hails Jordan's progress
Andre Ayew is savouring the prospect of sharing a dressing room with his younger brother Jordan at Swansea City.
Ayew is back for a second spell at the Liberty Stadium after completing a deadline-day move from West Ham United.
And that means he will once again get the chance to play alongside younger brother Jordan.
“We have played together at Marseille and with the national team,” the Ghana international said.
“Now it’s happening again. I am happy that Jordan is in the squad here – he has progressed a lot and he is playing really well.
“Jordan has had a run of games and his confidence level is really high. That’s important in football.
“He has to keep things going and now I am also here, we hope we can do a great job for the team.”
Jordan is currently the Swans’ top marksman having scored eight goals so far this season.
Andre, who finished his one previous season at Swan as the club’s leading scorer, has netted six times this term despite the fact that he has not been a regular in the West Ham side.
In all, Ayew scored 12 Hammers goals in 50 appearances – only 31 of which were starts – and he is happy with the contribution he made during almost 18 months in East London.
“As soon as I moved to West Ham, I got injured for a long time and then I went to the African Cup of Nations,” he said.
“But when I look at my statistics and my time from August until now, I think I am one of the most efficient players, if not the most efficient.
“I am not one of the players who played the most games, but I have no regrets.
“Things could have been much better if I had not got the injuries or if I’d played more games. But when I look at my statistics and those of others who play in my position and had more game-time than me, I don’t have to envy anyone.”
