West Ham United confirmed the signing of Andre Ayew on their official website on Monday evening, paying £20.5m for the Swansea City star.

Ayew, 26, made his name in France with Marseille, hitting 60 goals in 202 games for the Ligue 1 side before letting his contract run down to become a free agent last summer. According to the Daily Mail, Ayew snubbed West Ham in order to join Swansea, penning a four-year deal in South Wales.

Ayew instantly became a key part of the Swansea side, hitting 12 goals and two assists in the Premier League, featuring out wide but also as a striker as the Swans survived relegation from the Premier League.

Now though, Ayew has left the Liberty Stadium in order to finally join West Ham, penning a three-year deal at the London Stadium with the option for a further two years.

Ayew's move will give West Ham another dangerous attacking weapon, whilst he will also be reuniting with his former Marseille team-mate Dimitri Payet in a potentially potent partnership.

Since the move was confirmed on Monday night, Swansea fans have been reacting on Twitter to the deal - and it's fair to say it has caused something of a split among supporters.

Some fans are gutted, believing that Ayew is a fantastic player on his day, stating that it was a privilege to watch a top class player in action at the Liberty Stadium, whilst thanking him for his performances in the club's battle against the drop last season.

Others aren't bothered at all, and suggested that the £20.5m deal is great value for Swansea given that they signed him for free just a year ago, and feel he never really had a defined role in the Swans' starting line-up.
