Ghanaian forward Andre Dede Ayew has been appointed the vice-captain of English Championship side Swansea City.

Midfielder Matt Grimes was confirmed as Swans skipper in the summer, and Swansea City head coach Steve Cooper has now revealed Ayew is his deputy, praising the Ghanaian’s positive influence on the dressing room.

And, while keen to point out there are no shortage of experienced heads offering leadership in a young squad, Cooper praised the impact Ayew has made since returning from African Cup of Nations duty late in the summer.

“Andre is a senior figure and a very positive influence around the group,” said Cooper.

“We are very lucky, we have players like Wayne Routledge, Nathan Dyer and Kyle Naughton too.

“We know there is a bit of a status to being captain or vice-captain, but we do have senior figures in the squad.

“Andre has got the attributes to lead, and he does it well through good and bad moments and long may that continue.

“It’s good for Matt as well to have players like Andre, Wayne and Nathan around him.
