Ayew out of Swansea relegation clash
Swansea City will be without Ghana international Andre Ayew for their relegation clash at home to Aston Villa.
The Swans look to ensure their Premier League status for next season, with victory over basement side Villa at the weekend. But they will have to do so without their midfielder, Ayew.
“I would not have thought so. It’s probably going to be a couple of weeks.” Swans coach Alan Curtis told BBC Radio Wales.
“He just turned his ankle. He’s probably doubtful for the Villa game.”
That means the 26-year-old, who has netted eight times for the Welsh outfit, will not come up against his brother, Jordan.
However, Gambia winger, Modou Barrow, replaced Ayew in the starting line-up, in their 3-2 loss at Bournemouth – scoring his first league goal for the club to get the Swans back in the game.
“I thought he (Barrow) was superb,” Curtis added. “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.”
Swansea had been battling relegation for much of the season, but are currently eight points clear of the relegation zone and would be unlucky to go down from this position.
However, things are not looking so great for Andre’s brother, Jordan. The 24-year-old looks an almost certainty to suffer relegation with Villa, who have picked up just 16 points all season.
