Swansea City forward Andre Ayew says he feels "at home" at his new club after scoring on his debut against Chelsea.

The Ghana captain, 25, joined the Swans in June having spent his career so far at French club Marseille.

He made an early impact with a goal in a 2-2 draw at the champions on the Premier League's opening weekend.

"The Swansea players have really helped me out. They're really helping me to prove what I can do and they're pushing me," said Ayew.

"I feel at home already. I know with a few games to come I will get better and better as I get to know the league and the players.

"Marseille was a whole different thing for me. I grew up there, went to the academy, so it was home.

"Here is a different league, a different challenge."

A former BBC African Footballer of the Year with 62 caps for Ghana, Ayew was the Swansea's highest-profile signing of the summer.

His composed finish against Chelsea helped Swansea earn a creditable draw at Stamford Bridge.

"We had a good result. We knew what we were coming for and we managed to get what we wanted," he added.

"We showed a lot of quality and spirit. We worked as a team.

"What's important is that Swansea move forward. We will work hard because we know the season is long."
