Ghana star Andre Ayew has been crowned the Barclays Premier League’s Player of the Month of August.

The 25-year-old Ghana deputy captain scooped the coveted award after beating off competition from team-mate Bafetimbi Gomis, Leicester City’s Riyad Mahrez, Manchester City duo of David Silva and Aleksandar Kolarov as well as Manchester United’s Chris Smalling.

Andre has taken the Premier League by storm after bagging three goals in four games and crowning his superior form with a superb assist against Manchester United.

The former Olympique Marseille star scored on his competitive debut against title-holders Chelsea at the Stamford Bridge and inspired the Swans to a 2-2 draw.

His impressive showings include a string of fabulous headers against Newcastle United and Manchester United.

Andre arrived in the English top-flight as free agent after leaving French giants Olympique Marseille and has made a big impact at the club firing the Welsh side to fourth berth on the Premier League session before the international break.

He is also in the running to win the Swansea City Player of the Month of August award and is facing stiffer competition from Ecuador international Jefferson Montero and Bafetimbi Gomis.
