Besiktas to pip Newcastle to Andre Ayew signature
Swansea City forward Andre Ayew is closing in on a move to Turkish giants Besiktas with Newcastle planning a late move for the Ghana international according to sources close to the club
A number of clubs from home and abroad have shown an interest in Ayew with Besiktas in pole position to secure the former Marseille man's signature.
Besiktas are keen to take Ayew on a season-long loan deal with a view to a permanent deal and they are in talks with Swansea.
Ayew rejoined Swansea in January, signing a three-and-a-half year deal for a club record £18m fee from West Ham, having left the club for the Hammers in 2016, but could not help the club avoid relegation to the Championship.
