Report: Clubs alerted to availability of Newcastle and Sunderland-linked Swansea midfielder

Andre Ayew could be on his way out of Swansea City a year after arriving in Wales, a report claims.

Swansea City midfielder Andre Ayew, who was linked to North East rivals Newcastle United and Sunderland in January, could lead a summer clear out at the Liberty Stadium.

The Sun reports that Swansea have alerted clubs to Ayew's availability, a year after they fought off competition to land the Ghanaian on a free transfer.

Ayew, who has scored eight goals and assisted another four for the Welsh side, is said to be rated at around the £10 million mark.

According to the Guardian, Sunderland were told the 26-year-old was not for sale in January, before returning with an offer of £10 million plus Fabio Borini.

And Ayew's brother Ibrahim claimed earlier this month, as reported by Wales Online, that Newcastle and Liverpool both balked at the former Marseille star's £5 million price tag during his time in France.

The two North East clubs, who are battling relegation to the Championship, are both set for busy summers whether they remain in the Premier League or not.

And the pair could kick off their spending with the signing of Ayew, who is reportedly due a loyalty bonus if he remains at the Liberty Stadium.
