“Bony should stay at Swansea”

Former Wales striker, Iwan Roberts has urged Swansea City forward, Wilfried Bony to stay at least until the end of the season.

Roberts told BBC Sport “Unless they get an absolutely ridiculous offer I don’t think he’ll go until maybe the end of the season,” he said.

Bony joined the Swans in 2013 for a club record fee of £12m from Vitesse Arnhem. The Ivorian bagged himself 25 goals last season and has so far continued in the same vain. Bony is now ready to go off to the African Cup of Nations and help Ivory Coast; however, with speculation mounting on the future of the striker, will Garry Monk be able to keep hold of his prized asset?

With Liverpool, Arsenal and Real Madrid all rumoured to be interested in the striker, will Bony be looking for a way out of Swansea? The 25-year-old did recently pen a new one-year extension on his contract which now lasts until 2018.

Iwan Roberts continued his case for Bony to stay, insisting; “He’s probably playing the best football of his career,” Roberts added.

“He looks as if he’s happy at Swansea.”

Will Bony stay or go?
