Here's your round-up of all the latest Swansea City news for Monday, June 3.

PSV closing in on Driouech

PSV Eindhoven are reportedly closing in on winger Couhaib Driouech, and could look to tie up a deal early next week.

According to Eindhoven Dagblad, PSV have already submitted an offer worth around €2m for the 22-year-old, with current club Excelsior now unlikely to stand in his way following their recent relegation from the Eredivisie.

The news will come as a blow to Swansea City, who remained keen admirers of the Moroccan following a failed pursuit in January. On that occasion, the Swans ended up landing Brazilian winger Ronald instead.

It's not clear if they made any sort of concrete move this time around to land the forward, but it's understood he was still a player with admirers inside SA1.

However, Eindhoven is reportedly Driouech's preferred destination, and it seems Swansea will once again have to look elsewhere.

Villa open to Ayew departure

Former Swansea City forward Jordan Ayew could reportedly leave Crystal Palace this summer.

Ayew has been with the Eagles since 2018, initially arriving on loan from the Swans following their relegation from the Premier League before signing on as a free agent.

The 32-year-old has largely been a regular at Selhurst Park ever since, but could now be on his way out as Oliver Glasner looks to shake up the squad.

Ayew is currently entering the final year of his current deal, and journalist Alan Nixon believes Palace are now open to cashing in.

Former Swan working with England

Former Swansea City striker Paul Connor has been helping England with their preparations for this summer’s Euros.

Gareth Southgate’s Three Lions begin their campaign against Serbia in Gelsenkirchen on June 16 before taking on Denmark and Slovenia.

Connor, who spent two years with the Swans after joining in 2004, is currently working as a podiatrist in the north-east, and has been working with the Three Lions squad ahead of their friendly against Bosnia Herzegovina at Newcastle United’s St James’ Park on Monday night (7.45pm).

“I do some work for Middlesbrough FC, where England have been staying,” he told GloucestershireLive.

“The team doctors know each other, so that is how the opportunity came around for me.

“I am very proud and it was a great experience. The players and staff were all very friendly and welcoming.

“They are definitely the most expensive feet I’ve worked on! Hopefully it can help bring the trophy home.”
