Andre Ayew, the Black Stars captain and former Swansea forward, has been linked with a move to Qatari Champions Al Sadd.

Swansea City released Ayew in June after he failed to return to the English Premier League for the second time in a row.

Swansea and their Ghanaian captain would have to spend at least another season in the Championship after losing in the playoff final to Brentford. This meant that the club couldn’t afford to keep Ayew on his reported wage of £80,000.

There were mixed reactions from Swansea fans on the news to let their talisman leave the club, with many acknowledging the impact he had on the team while he was there.

Andre Ayew finished as the club’s top scorer in the last two seasons and scored the winner in their playoffs semi-final first leg.

A host of European clubs, including Scottish giants, Celtic had been rumored to be interested in signing the forward.

However, Al Sadd appear to have won the race, announcing on Twitter that they had reached an agreement to sign the Ghanaian international.

The club added that the forward is expected to arrive in the country on Thursday morning to complete the deal.

Al Sadd have been champions of Qatar 15 times and won the league and cup double last season.

They also won the AFC Champions League back in 2011, which remains their sole triumph in the competition.

They are currently managed by Barcelona legend Xavi.
