Ghana international, Andre Ayew has paid glowing tribute to former side Swansea City insisting the club “will forever be part” of him.
Ayew sent out the heartwarming farewell speech to the Swans comes hours after completing his move to Turkish giants Fenerbahce on Friday afternoon.
The former West Ham forward joined Fenerbahce on a season-long loan deal after passing his medical in the capital city of Istanbul.
The 29-year-old left Swansea City’s pre-season tour in Germany and Austria to complete a medical in Istanbul following talks.
Ayew is thought to be among Swansea’s highest earners and his departure was expected following the club’s relegation from the Premier League.
Our work is like this, people come and go. In my life as a professional footballer there has been some clubs that will forever be part of me and Swansea City is one of those clubs. With some clubs you barely feel the love and others you feel the love from birth and that is how I feel for Swansea. I feel so sad for not being able to help keep the team up last season but things are looking bright up there and I urge all the fans to stick together and support the team. I wish my former team mates, the fans and the technical team there all the best. Jack Army!!! @swansofficial #mopao#swansea
The former Marseilles striker re-signed for the Swans from West Ham United in January in a move worth £18m.
