Andre Ayew says his father Abedi Pele Ayew was against his decision to switch camp from Swansea City to West Ham United.

The deputy skipper of the Black Stars completed a 20.6 million pounds club record move to the Hammers.

However, he failed to replicate the form that compelled former West Ham United boss Slaven Bilic to break bank for his signature from the Swans due to injury worries.

He has disclosed that he would have stayed at Swansea, if he had listened to Abedi Pele Ayew.

“My father is happy, he was not for me leaving Swansea to be fair,” said Andre.

“He told me he did not want me to go, he felt I was not done here but things happen and decisions are made.”

“But when I had the chance to come back his advice was to come back to Swansea and not go anywhere else.”

“I thought about it, I have more experience now so I made sure I considered everything.”

Andre Ayew has rejoined his junior brother Jordan Ayew at Swansea.
