Bony: I Will Be A Swansea City Player

Bony: I Will Be A Swansea City Player

Responding to early transfer speculation ahead of the Summer transfer window, top goalscorer Wilfried Bony says he'll be a Swansea City player.

Manager Garry Monk has also insisted that interested clubs would have to pay an 'astronomical fee' if they want to sign the striker, who'll be serving the Ivory Coast in next month's World Cup.

Bony has caught the eyes of everyone in football, from fans to pundits, and opposition managers and players - leaving their mark on them having proved to be one of the most difficult strikers to mark and dispossess in the Premier League.

Scoring 25 goals in all competitions, the striker had a slow start to life in South Wales, as it took him some time to adjust and to improve his match fitness after signing late on last Summer, and had to play catch up in terms of pre-season preparation.

Some fans wrote him off early on, but he's proved all his doubters wrong in magnificent style.

Bony told the Evening Post:

'I will be a Swansea player.

'I don't react to transfer speculation.

'I just focus on my job, that's all I think of.

'I have three years contract with the club and I just focus on my job. If something happens we would have to decide.'


He also thanked fans for their support during the season:

'The supporters have given us a lot of support and motivation this season, so I just want to say thank you to them.

'They have sung my name all season, which has really helped me. When the crowd sings your name, you just want to make them happy.'

Though Swansea's season has been turbulent, Bony reckons Garry Monk's men have finished up with plenty to feel pleased about.

'Our target was to pass the 40-point mark, so we are all happy to finish the season on a high,' he said.

'Overall, it has been a great season. We are pleased to stay in the Premier League and, for me personally, I am happy with how I have done.

'We have played a lot of games with quite a small squad, but we have done well.'

I think we should all thank Wilfried Bony, not only for his goals but for his marvellous attitude and unselfish running. It's very difficult to play a lot of games as a lone striker but he never stopped running and looking for the ball. He's been magnificent. Let's all wish him well for the World Cup. May he come back injury free and ready to go again next season.
