Ayew to return against Derby County


Swansea City manager Steve Cooper has confirmed that Andre Ayew will be back from injury on May 1.

The Swans are chasing promotion back to the English Premier League. Cooper’s side currently sit in fourth spot on the log standings with 76 points from 43 games.

Speaking to the media after Tuesday night’s 1-0 defeat against Queens Park Rangers, Cooper gave an update about the recovery of his vice-captain. He revealed that Ayew should be fit in time for their final home game against Derby County.

“He is out with a hamstring injury, it is a grade one so he is unlikely to be available for Reading, but hopefully he will be okay for Derby.

“It could have been worse, for sure. Hamstring injuries can be nasty, it could have ruled him out for the rest of the season.

“But it will not do that, we will have to see if he could be ready for Sunday in a few days or so.”

Swansea have been struggling to put together some consistent results in recent games and with only a few games remaining before the end of the season, the Welsh club need to dig deeper to stay in the top six of the division.

Ayew has netted 15 times in 41 games for the Welsh club.
