#DeadlineDay: Bony Completes Return To Swansea

share on:

Wilfried Bony has completed a return to former club, Swansea from Manchester City, signing a two-year contract.

Bony has been brought in by Paul Clement for £12 million, as a replacement for Llorente, who has left for Tottenham.

The Ivory Coast international striker joined City from Swansea in 2015, but failed to make a mark at the club and also on loan with Stoke.

A statement from the Swans on the club’s official website read: “Bony has signed a two-year deal, with the option of a third, at the Liberty Stadium after the Swans paid an undisclosed fee for the Ivory Coast international.

“Bony, who has opted for squad number two, returns to South Wales just over two-and-a-half years after he left the Swans for City in a deal worth up to £28 million.

“He was a huge fans’ favourite during his first spell as a Swan, when he established himself as one of the Premier League’s leading frontmen.

“Bony originally signed for the Swans from Vitesse Arnhem, where he had an exceptional goalscoring record, in a club-record deal in the summer of 2013.

“He netted 34 goals in 70 appearances – only 56 of which were starts – and became a focal point of the Swans side.”
