Who Are Ya? Wilfried Bony (Swansea City)
Your whistle-stop guide to the latest Premier League arrivals
Name: Wilfried Bony
Signed from: Vitesse Arnhem
Did you know?
Bony is nicknamed Daddy Cool, for obvious reasons.
What’s the deal?
The Swans have smashed their club record transfer fee to boost their goalscoring options for next season.
Prolific strikers plying their trade in Holland are notoriously hit-and-miss in the Premier League, but the Ivory Coast international looks the real deal. He scored 31 goals in 30 games last season.
Subject to getting a work permit, he’s agreed a four-year contract.
What do they say?
“This move has been talked about for quite some time, so I am delighted it is all completed. Now it is important that I focus my mind on the challenge ahead because I hope to make the Swansea fans very happy.”
