Swansea City unveil new signing Andre Ayew on June 10, 2015 in Swansea, Wales.

Signing Ghana winger Andre Ayew on ?free? transfer a major coup ? but did not come cheap for the English Premier League side as details of the deal emerges.

Swansea City pulled of a coup last week by swooping to sign Ghana international Andre Ayew from under the noses of a host of clubs.

Ayew, 25, arrived on a free transfer after his contract at Marseille expired.

But the deal is, understandably, not a cheap one for Swansea with the striker believed to be earning ?60,000-a-week over the term of his four-year contract.

Associated fees and payments, including to agents, are also thought to be around ?2million.

Still Swansea will rightly argue that with no transfer fee involved the deal for such a top-notch player still represents good business.
