Andre Ayew has struggled to earn a regular place in West Ham United’s team this season.
The attack-minded player has started just nine Premier League games and has come off the bench in a further nine.
In that time the 28-year-old has scored three goals and created two assists.
Since David Moyes took over from Slaven Bilic in November, Ayew has played in 11 games in all competitions, but has played just a full 90 minutes three times.
According to Sky Sports reporter Kaveh Solhekol, Ayew’s former club Swansea City have been sniffing around.
The reporter claims that the Welsh outfit, who sold the Ghana international to West Ham for £20.5m in 2016, have had a £14m bid turned down.
West Ham reject Swansea City bid worth up to £14m with add-ons for striker Andre Ayew. West Ham value him at £20m – price they paid Swansea when they signed him in August 2016

In a separate piece by The Telegraph, it was claimed that the East London outfit are reluctant to sell Ayew due to Andy Carroll’s recent injury blow.
The Hammers are reportedly concerned about being left short of attacking options for the second half of the season.
Fans have tweeted their views on the Ayew situation.
Why are we rejecting 14m??? Oh yeh cos we want more money than what the player is worth. But we do the same and offer embarrassing amounts for players.
Just offer the goin rate either way #COYI

And we get criticised for bidding measly amounts…
At least bid £20m with the poxy add ons

He’s never been worth the ridiculous price we paid Swansea for him, so I would have taken the 14 million and got rid of him!

I’m sure the player doesn’t want to go back there!

They are getting greedy. I'd take 20 for Ayew and 10 for Sakho. Buy Sturridge!
