Sunderland are not trying to sign Swansea City forward Andrew Ayew, Sam Allardyce has insisted.
The Black Cats made an enquiry for the Ghana international, and they reportedly made a bid of £10m plus Fabio Borini last week.
“There’s been no contact between us and Swansea for us to make an offer,” he said. “We haven’t made an offer to them for that, and I don’t think Swansea would want to sell him. I think that’s a bit of speculation on the media’s behalf.
“I can’t say any more than that because he’s a Swansea player. We are not allowed to speculate any more on that in case we get fined.”
