Swans’ Ayew doubtful for Villa visit

Andrew Ayew

Andre Ayew has made 29 appearances in all competitions for Swansea this season

Swansea City forward Andre Ayew is a doubt for next Saturday’s Premier League visit of Aston Villa due to an ankle injury, says coach Alan Curtis.

The 26-year-old Ghana international, who has scored eight goals this season, missed the 3-2 loss at Bournemouth.

Asked if Ayew would be fit to face Villa, Curtis told BBC Radio Wales: “I would not have thought so. It’s probably going to be a couple of weeks.

“He just turned his ankle. He’s probably doubtful for the Villa game.”

Winger Modou Barrow replaced Ayew in the Swans’ starting side and scored his first league goal for the club to draw the Welsh side level in the first half.

Curtis was delighted with the Gambian’s contribution.

“I thought he (Barrow) was superb,” Curtis continued. “He was probably the most dangerous player on the park.

“With his first goal for the club, that will give him confidence.

“He should he was worthy of the start. He was excellent.”
