Ghanaian striker Jordan Pierre Ayew on Wednesday night won three awards at the Swansea City players gala held at the Liberty Stadium.

Ayew, 26, won the Players’ Player of the Season, Goal of the Season and Top Goalscorer of the Season awards.

However, he was edged out for the Swansea City Supporters' Player of the Season award which was clinched by Polish goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski.

The Polish international has played every minute of the Swans’ Premier League campaign and has established himself as one of the most consistent goalkeepers in the English top flight.

Ayew, who was voted Players’ Player of the Year ahead of Fabianski and Alfie Mawson.

The Ghanaian has become a key figure in Carlos Carvalhal’s team and is the Swans’ leading marksman with 11 goals so far in 2017-18, which meant he also took the Top Goalscorer Award.


Ayew also took the Goal of the Season prize, which was voted for by guests at the awards dinner, for his memorable solo effort against Wolves.

“It means a lot to me that my teammates voted for me. The season has not been great but we have three games and we want to keep fighting," the former Aston Villa star said in an interview after receiving the award.

“I am sure we will stay in the Premier League because we deserve it and my team-mates deserve it."

“The club has been so good so I give my 100 percent for them.”

Connor Roberts picked up the Best Newcomer Award having broken into the first team this season, with Tammy Abraham and Sam Clucas also nominated.

George Byers was named Under-23/Young Player of the Year ahead of Roberts and Jordan Garrick.

Abraham was also nominated for The Community Champion Award along with Fernandez, but they were pipped to the prize by Leon Britton.
