Swansea City want to re-sign their former player Andre Ayew from West Ham United, according to a report on page 50 of Tuesday's Sun newspaper.

West Ham paid £20 million to prise Ayew away from Swansea on a three-year deal 18 months ago.

However, the Sun reports the Swans would only need around half that amount to tempt their relegation rivals into selling.
