Swansea City are very close to finally completing the signing of Wilfried Bony from Manchester City on a £13 million deal, according to David Anderson of the Mirror.

Swansea have chased Bony all summer but were never willing to meet City’s asking price. But the Swans recently sold Gylfi Sigurdsson to Everton and have enough money available to complete the Bony deal as well as signing Nacer Chadli from West Bromwich Albion. Swansea manager Paul Clement has requested the two players before Deadline Day, and it looks as though one of them is really coming.

City fans will certainly be happy Bony is off the books, because his wages were high and his contribution was minimal. Getting £13 million for Bony is a major loss, but the club is rich enough to absorb the loss. Good luck in Swansea, Wilfried. Thanks for... something.
