Jordan Ayew bagged 11 goals to finish last season as Swansea City top scorer.

Ghana striker, Jordan Ayew yesterday completed his loan switch to Crystal Palace.

Provided the transfer fee is suitable, Swansea will not stand in his way as they want to get his massive wages off the books.

Prior to his loan move, Ayew refused to train for the first-team in the hope of forcing through an exit from the Liberty Stadium.

Meanwhile, the inclement weather has forced the Kerala state electricity board to issue a third red alert in the connection. The northern districts of Palakkad and Malappuram and the hilly districts of Wayanad and Idukki were reeling under floods.

The 26-year-old showed a good form for the Swans last season, scoring 11 goals in the Premier League.

Ayew signed for the Welsh side back in January 2017 from Aston Villa and after much speculation during the summer, has moved to Selhurst Park. "I am looking forward to playing with the boys and meet the fans, and hopefully it'll be a good season".

But Crystal Palace have put in work to make sure they will still sign Ayew and, according to the BBC, have put the finishing touches to a season-long loan agreement. "It's a step up for me and I'm ready for the challenge and to get to where I think I can get to". Ayew said Palace manager Roy Hodgson had told him that he intends to use him up-front but he doesn't really mind where he plays.

However, no one has come close to meeting Palace's £70million evaluation so far.
