Ghanaian forward Andre Ayew has returned to the Liberty Stadium on a three-and-a-half-year contract deal.

The Black Stars attacker did not hide his feelings when he faced the media on Thursday, hinting on his intentions in helping the Welsh side to stay out of relegation.

“I am very happy to be back.

“Things have changed at the club, but the faces are still the same and I am happy to see everyone. Now I need to do the job.

“What’s important is that we keep the club up.

“The club has shown a lot of trust in me and a lot of determination to bring me in.

“Now I need to give back to them on the field. My goal and my challenge is to do everything possible to help the club stay up – the same as it is for all the players and the staff.

“That’s what I am here for and I will do everything I can to make sure it happens.

“The season is going to be long and there will be a lot of tough games.

“It’s not going to be easy – everyone wants to stay up and when you look at the table, 20th place to ninth or 10th is very, very tight.

“But when you know the players who are here you know the quality they have.

“Sometimes in football you can have some bad results, but I think we have the quality of players to play in the Premier League.

“We want to stay at this level and we need to do everything possible to make sure we don’t let the city down and we don’t let the fans down.”

“I had a great moment at the club last time.

“I had a great feeling with my team-mates and a great relationship with the fans.

“I had a few others to look at, but when the opportunity to come back to Swansea came up, I wanted to take it.

“I felt the fans wanted me back, the chairman wanted me back and the gaffer wanted me, so I am really pleased.”

Swansea City have lost only one in eight games since Carlos Carvalhal took charge at the end of December.
