Wilfried Bony: Linked with big money move to West Ham

Vitesse Arnhem striker Bony is currently on international duty with Ivory Coast and scored in Saturday's World Cup qualifying win over Gambia.

Reports in Holland and England claim West Ham were close to agreeing a £12million club record deal for Bony.

The player himself has never hidden his desire to move to England, but he admits but he did not want to comment on West Ham's reported bid.

"I am an ambitious player, I am enjoying my football in the Netherlands but I expect to move to a bigger league if I am doing well, I can't change that," he told Sky Sports.

"I love the Premier League and want to play here if there is an opportunity.

"But now I am happy we won a game for Ivory Coast after missing an opportunity in South Africa to win the Nations Cup."

lassic management. Build them up and then knock them back. Raise expectations and then dampen them. Create a dynamic where by you demand the most from your team, but where the team are given room to manoeuvre unexpected or unwanted results. Classy work by Van Gaal, he really reminds me a lot of me. A smart cookie, make no doubt.
