Former Spurs and QPR manager Harry Redknapp hasn’t been on twitter long but he’s already turning into one of those ‘in the know’ former agent types!

It’s another example of where a tweet, 140 characters or less, has made headlines across a huge number of a nationwide and local news sources, as he says that Swansea City are close to signing Andre Ayew from French side Marseille.

Redknapp tweeted:




He’s also more recently revealed that former Derby County manager Steve McLaren is set to replace John Carver at Newcastle United.

I did wonder if the account was a fake, but it’s been confirmed as official.

BBC Wales Sport also ‘understands’ – probably by reading his tweet, that the 25 year-old is in talks about a possible switch to the Liberty Stadium.

His contract at Marseille expires this month and the Swans could win the race to sign the free agent, as talks will continue on Wednesday say the BBC.

Ayew already has 62 caps for Ghana, scoring 11 goals. He can play as a winger or second striker, and could be used in a similar way to how Wayne Routledge was used alongside Gomis in the 4-4-2 diamond system.

Meanwhile, also on twitter, Swans striker Bafetimbi Gomis says that fellow Frenchman – St Etienne left back Franck Tabanou is close to completing a move to the club.

His agent recently said that the player had chosen to join the Swans this Summer –

Ayew, another name to keep an eye on this Summer and one we’d like to see happen, but we still think Loic Remy is one to ignore as he doesn’t fit the criteria for a typical Swansea signing.
