Swansea City sign Llorente, accept bid from West Ham for Ayew

Spanish international striker Fernando Llorente has joined Swansea City, and looks set to be a replacement in the squad for Andre Ayew.

The 31-year-old, who was a member of the winning Spain squads at World Cup 2010 and Euro 2012, has signed a two-year deal with the Welsh side having switched to the Premier League for an undisclosed fee.

New Swans boss Francesco Guidolin was keen to get an attacker on board with Eder, Alberto Paloschi and Bafetimbi Gomis all exiting the club this offseason.


Another man who could be on the move is last season’s top scorer Andre Ayew, with reports suggesting that a £20 million bid from West Ham United has been accepted.

Ayew, 26, scored 12 Premier League goals in the last campaign but struggled to find the net between the beginning of February and May.
