Swansea City’s Wilfried Bony signs one year extension with the club

As reported by BBC Sport, Swansea City striker Wilfried Bony has signed a one-year extension to his current deal, keeping him at the Liberty Stadium until 2013.

The Ivorian international, 25, signed for the Welsh club in the summer of 2013 from then-Eredivisie side Vitesse. Since his arrival at Swansea, he’s shone spearheading the attack. Bony has been linked with the likes of Arsenal, Liverpool and Tottenham after scoring 26 goals in all competitions in his debut campaign.

But despite the interest surrounding him, Bony has been adamant on extended his stay with Garry Monk’s side. This season, they are in a lofty 5th place in the Premier League, with Bony having scored and create a total of six goals in 11 games. Monk is understandably delighted that Bony has committed his future to the club so close to the January transfer window.

“It’s great news for the club. I’ve spoken a lot about what Bony has brought to the club not just on the pitch but off it as well. These types of players are ones that we do our best to keep at the club for a long time.

“It’s also important that we see commitment from that player towards the club, his team-mates and the fans. Bony has shown that he is very committed to this club by signing an extension here.”
