Andre Ayew has won big at the Ghana Football Awards held this past weekend.

The Black Stars skipper had a good season with Swansea City which has propelled him to be voted as the Ghana Footballer of the Year.

Ayew was directly involved in 21 goals the Swans scored in the league, finding the back of the net 17 times and providing four assists. He was also on target in the promotion play-offs, scoring the only goal in a 2-1 aggregate loss against Brentford.

He also played a crucial role to help the West African nation qualify for the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations scheduled to be played in Cameroon next year. The former Olympique Marseille star beat Gladson Awako and Ajax attacker Mohammed Kudus to the accolade.

Arsenal midfielder Thomas Partey was the previous winner of the prestigious award, but he did not make the final list this year. Ayew is a free agent after leaving Swansea who offered him a new contract, but the 2009 U20 world champion opted against extending his stay with the Welsh club.

He has been linked with a number of Premier League clubs with the likes of Leeds United and Newcastle United amongst some of the clubs who are reportedly monitoring his situation.

Since making a big move to Marseille in 2007, the 31-year-old has played for several clubs across Europe. He has played in the Turkish Super Lig for Fenerbahce and in the Premier League where he featured for West Ham United before eventually joining Swansea.
