Official: Wilfried Bony joins Stoke City on a season-long loan

Ivorian forward Wilfried Bony has joined Stoke City on a season-long loan deal.

Bony had been linked to a whole host of clubs throughout the summer, including West Ham and Everton, but Stoke have won the race for his signature after agreeing to pay the quoted £2 million loan fee for his services.

He did play a part in Manchester City’s first two pre-season games, but it appears that Pep Guardiola saw nothing to convince him that Bony had a future at the club.

It was initially expected that the former Swansea City striker would only join a club on loan until January, due to a rumoured agreement with a Chinese club, but it seems that Bony will stay with The Potters for the remainder of the 2016/2017 season.

Bony joined Manchester City in January of 2015 but failed to gain the support of the City fans, after a series of lacklustre performances.

He joins Stoke with the hope of getting his Premier League career back on track.

Good luck, Wilfried.
