Wilfried Bony

Wilfried Bony returned to Swansea City for a second spell after rejoining from Manchester City on transfer deadline day in August 2017.

The striker, who scored 34 goals in 70 games for the Swans during his previous stint in SA1, arrived shortly after Fernando Llorente's departure to Tottenham Hotspur.

The Swans broke their transfer record to recruit Bony the first time around in the summer of 2013, when he signed from Vitesse Arnhem after a goal-laden spell in the Netherlands.

The sizeable outlay proved to be money very well spent, with the Ivorian impressing Manchester City enough to command a £28million fee in January 2015.

He would score 10 goals in 46 appearances – just 20 of which were starts – for City, two of which came in two reunions with the Swans.

Pep Guardiola’s appointment as City boss saw Bony leave for Stoke, where he spent the 2016-17 season on loan.

The powerhouse forward’s time in the Potteries was surprisingly disappointing, with Bony starting only nine league games in Stoke colours.

He scored two goals for the Staffordshire club, both of which came against the Swans, making it four strikes in three appearances against his former employers.

After a serious knee injury kept him sidelined for nine months, he joined Qatari club Al-Arabi on loan for the final months of the 2018-19 campaign.
