Crystal Palace are poised to complete a season-long loan deal for Swansea striker Jordan Ayew.

Roy Hodgson had been keen to add to his attacking options following the departures of Bakary Sako and Lee Chung-yong earlier this summer.

Swansea had wanted £12million for the Ghana international and turned down an offer in the region of £7m earlier this summer from Fulham.

The Eagles had been linked with a move for out of favour Liverpool striker Danny Ings but they have swooped for the Ghanaian instead.

There is not expected to be much more business done at Selhurst Park on deadline day with chairman Steve Parish insisting any late bids for star man Wilfried Zaha would be 'ridiculous'.
