Black Stars captain, Andre Ayew is on the verge of completing a move to Qatari champions Al Sadd.
Ayew was released by Swansea in June after a second-consecutive failed bid to return to the Premier League.
Swansea’s loss in the playoffs final against Brentford meant they would have to spend at least another season in the Championship.
This meant that the club could effectively not afford to keep Ayew on his wages, reported to be around 80,000 pounds a week.
There were mixed reactions from Swansea fans to the news that Ayew had been let go, with many acknowledging the impact he had on the team in his time there.
Andre Ayew finished as the club’s top scorer in the last two seasons and scored the winner in their playoffs semi-final first leg.
