Swansea’s Wilfried Bony to sign new deal after international duty

According to BBC Sport, Swansea City striker Wilfried Bony has revealed he will extend his stay at the Liberty stadium after returning from international duty.

“Yes (I was tempted) but for me it’s the past and not important now. I don’t think about that now. (The new contract) is something I wanted. It will be done when I come back (from international duty),” said Bony.

“This contract is obviously a symbol of how much he enjoys being here. It’s a symbol of how committed he is to the club. It’s a very big thing for him, the club and also his team-mates. It is nice to see such a good player and a big character in the changing room commit to the club and the team and it will be a big boost for everyone,” said Swansea manager Garry Monk.

The Ivorian international signed for the Swans at the start of last season, joining for around £16M from then-Eredivisie outfit Vitesse. He enjoyed a fantastic debut season with City, scoring 25 goals in all competitions, and was linked with the likes of Arsenal, Tottenham and Liverpool as a result.

But he now looks happy in Wales, and has so far helped them to 5th place in the league after 11 games.
