Manchester City striker Wilfried Bony has joined Premiership side Stoke City on a season-long loan
Ivory Coast international Bony, 27, made 15 Premier League starts for Manchester City since signing for £28m from Swansea City in January 2015 but is yet to didn’t feature under new boss Pep Guardiola
Last week, West Ham United manager Slaven Bilic said he was interested in signing Bony but Stoke have now Annouced his signing
“Bringing Wilfried in was a no-brainer for us,” said Potters manager Mark Hughes.
“He has power, speed and very good physical attributes.”
“Eighteen months ago he was being bought for a hugely significant amount of money, so we know that we are bringing in a top quality striker.
“Everybody is aware of Wilfried and what he is capable of, and it was no surprise that one of the bigger clubs came in for him on the back of his performances for Swansea – the only surprise has been that he didn’t enjoy the success with Manchester City that we all thought he would.”
