Wilfried Bony: No contact from other clubs

Bony scored 25 goals for the Swans in his first season following his £12million switch from Vitesse Arnhem last summer.

This has led to reported interest from clubs such as Arsenal, Chelsea, Everton, Liverpool, Newcastle and West Ham, as well as German giants Borussia Dortmund.

However, Monk insists there has been no contact concerning the 25-year-old, who is set to feature for the Ivory Coast in the World Cup.

Absolutely zero

The Swansea boss told walesonline: “There have been lots of stories, but we've had absolutely zero contact from anyone about Wilf and the fact is that as a club, we don't care anyway.

"We don't want to lose Wilf. We want him to stay with us and for him to be part of our future and the fact is that he is under contract. He is our player so it will be down to us to decide whether he stays or not.

“There is always going to be speculation about someone who scored as many goals as Wilf did last season. It's a part of football that when a player does well, he will be linked with other clubs.

"But Wilf is our player, so all the speculation doesn't matter."

ow is the time for Allardyce to finally get a chance at a big club please. He is likely to have a number of great offers for his services this summer, but who will he choose? Will it be Liverpool, Real Madrid, Dortmund or Man City?

thought exactly this when the Match of the Day pundits were peddling this line. Is it really not okay for fans of a club to have some ambition these days then?
