By the time the four-year contract term was coming to an end, he had signed a one-year contract that would extend his stay at Marseille for another year. He, therefore, left Marseille in 2015.
After a series of continually posting good results for the time that he was in Marseille, Andre joined Swansea City in June 2015 after signing a four-year contract. In August that year, he scored his first goal during a match against Chelsea. His second goal came in later that month during a game against New Castle where his team won.
