Wilfried Bony admits he has a lot more to show the Premier League as he returns to “school” with Swansea City.

Bony is back at the Liberty after completing his move from Manchester City on transfer deadline day.

The 28-year-old has penned a two-year deal with the option of a further 12 months after the two clubs agreed an undisclosed fee.

A huge fans’ favourite during his spell at the Swans which saw him score 34 goals in 70 appearances, Bony now aims to repeat the form which saw him become one of the Premier League’s leading strikers.


“I am still at school. I always want to improve, and I have a lot to show,” said the Ivorian.

“I have a very good feeling, especially for myself, the fans and my family.

“I need to be on the pitch playing, so when I heard Swansea wanted me back I was very excited.

“We all know what happened here in the past. I can’t wait to be out on the pitch to show myself again.

“I don’t have a target to achieve, I just want to take it match by match – I want the best for the team first, and then you will see the rest.”

Bony has opted to wear squad number two - vacated following Jordi Amat’s loan move to Real Betis.

And he explained why he wanted to take a number usually worn by a defender.

“It’s a special number for me,” he added. “It’s the second time I am at the club, hence I wanted to wear number two, and I want to achieve more for the team.”
