Andrew Ayew this afternoon appears to be on the road to Swansea.
The misfit Hammer has been the subject of an £18 million bid from his former club and looks all but certain to make a Liberty Stadium return.
The Hammers board have been holding out for more than the £16m plus extras on offer until yesterday but the Swans are now believed to have upped the offer by £2 million and we understand the player left training today and headed off immediately for Wales.
A senior course inside the London Stadium revealed the move is now very likely amid reports that Preston North End striker Jordan Hugill (above) is on his way to London for a medical at the Irons.
The striker is very much a David Moyes “pick” and has scored eight league goals and two in Cup competitions helping PNE to nine place in the Championship – three outside the play offs.
