The path has been cut for Andre Ayew to make his switch to West Ham United after Swansea City signed Spanish international Fernando Llorente.
Ayew has been linked with the Hammers for weeks and the only stumbling block was Swansea finding a replacement for the Ghana international.
But now that Llorente has been secured, Swansea will let their top scorer for last season make the £20m move.
Ayew is said to have undergone medical already and the deal expected to be announced in the coming days.
The new English Premier League season starts next Saturday.
