It’s not always been roses and chocolate in the relationship between fans of Championship side, Swansea and Ghana international, Andre Ayew.
Ayew, after his move to the then Premier League club from french club Marseille, quickly became a fan favourite and secured a big-money transfer to West Ham.
After a short but productive time at the East London club, Ayew returned to Swansea as the Welsh club looked to retain their Premier League status.
After their relegation, however, many fans began to question the commitment of Andre and his brother Jordan as both sought a path out of the club and back into the top flight.
Jordan moved to Crystal Palace on loan while Andre signed a temporary deal with Turkish club Fenerbahçe.
This summer, Jordan’s move to Palace was made permanent with fans expectant – some even hoping – that Andre would follow him out of the Swans door, with over a week to go until the transfer window closes.
However, Andre’s performances for the Welsh club at the start of the season have had fans reconsidering this and praying for the window to shut.
Some have also taken to Twitter to appeal to the Black Stars captain to stay at the club.
A number of them believe that keeping Andre and teammate, Borja Baston who has also discovered a new lease of life would almost certainly guarantee promotion back up to the Premier League.
Swansea have played four games this season, Andre Ayew has played three of them, and has been influential in each.
Against Northampton, he scored twice as Swansea came from behind to win in the EFL Cup.
He played a huge role in the 3-2 win over Preston before providing two assists as the Swans beat QPR on Wednesday.
