Report: Swansea sweating on Ayew's fitness ahead of Stoke clash

Swansea City's Ghanaian star is facing a battle to be fit for Saturday's Premier League game at Stoke City.

Sky Sports understands that Andre Ayew is in contention to return to action for Swansea in their trip to Stoke City at the weekend.

The Ghana international, 26, has missed the last two games for the Swans after suffering an ankle injury in their 1-0 home win over Norwich earlier in the month.

Ayéw was an instant hit with the Swansea faithful, after he arrived on a free transfer from Marseilles in the summer, scoring two goals in their opening two games.

His pace and direct playing style has been a tremendous asset to the Welsh club.

The former Marseilles man's ability to change a game was highlighted when he played a defence splitting pass with the outside of his boot to release Bafétimbi Gomis to score in Swansea's 2-1 win over Manchester United earlier on this season.

Ayew's eight goals have helped his team to 15th in the table, 10 points clear of 18th placed Sunderland. In what has been a topsy turvy season, Swansea's run of three wins in their last four games has all but assured their Premier League status for next season.

The Swansea fans and coaching staff will welcome back Ayéw with open arms, as they continue to climb their way clear of danger.
