Swansea boss Monk dismisses Bony speculation
Swansea manager Garry Monk was quick to play down the rumours that Wilfried Bony may be on his way out of the Liberty Stadium, according to Sky Sports.
The striker, who will play for Ivory Coast at the World Cup in Brazil, scored 16 Premier League goals and 25 in all competitions last season after a £12m move from Vitesse Arnhem. With reported interest from the likes of Arsenal, Chelsea and Everton, Monk says that there has been “absolutely zero” contact from any club regarding Bony.
Former Swans defender Monk, who recently signed a three-year deal at the Welsh club, added: “There have been lots of stories, but we've had absolutely zero contact from anyone about Wilf and the fact is that as a club, we don't care anyway.
"We don't want to lose Wilf,” Monk continued. “We want him to stay with us and for him to be part of our future and the fact is that he is under contract. He is our player so it will be down to us to decide whether he stays or not.”
The 25 year old is set the lead the line alongside Chelsea legend Didier Drogba for The Elephants against Colombia, Greece and Japan in Group C of the World Cup.
