Andre Ayew, Six Others Depart Swansea City

Swansea City have announced the departure of seven players following the disappointment of last week's Championship play-off final defeat.

Four senior players will leave when their contracts expire later this summer, with club record signing Andre Ayew the most high-profile.

Ayew earns a reported wage of £80,000 per week – by far the highest salary in the Championship.

He has actually signed twice for Swansea; once on a free transfer in 2015 and again in 2018 for a sum of £18million.

Between those two spells he joined West Ham for a fee of £20.5million.

He leaves Swansea for a second time with a record of 35 goals in 106 games.

Fellow players Kieron Freeman, Declan John and Barrie McKay will also be leaving when their deals run out.

Meanwhile, loanee trio Freddie Woodman, Marc Guehi and Conor Hourihane have all returned to their parent clubs of Newcastle, Chelsea and Aston Villa respectively after all impressing and helping the side to Wembley.
