Wilfried Bony completes £28m Man City swoop

Manchester City have acquired the services of Wilfried Bony from Swansea City by signing him on a four-and-a-half-year deal.

The Ivorian striker is understood to have joined the City for around 28 million pounds, who is currently on an international duty for the Africa Cup of Nations.

The 26-year-old has scored 36 goals in 73 appearances for the Swans since joining the Premier League club from Dutch side Vitesse in 2013.

“It’s a great feeling for me, it’s a big honour to be here and it’s a great challenge,” he told Manchester City’s official website. ” I think it’s a great decision for me – Manchester City is in the Champions League. It is a big club with great players and a lot of experience.”

Bony became the Premier League champions’ first January signing of 2015 and will wear number 14 shirt for the Blues.
