The striker has stated his desire to leave the Eredivisie's surprise-package, with a move to England his preferred choice.

But after reported interest from unnamed clubs in Russia, where the transfer window does not close until February 27, Bony is ready to make a move now.

"I hope to leave this winter. My wishes have not changed," the 24-year-old told Voetbal International.

"Yes, the market in Russia is not open for very much longer, but what can I do?

"I can only work and wait. Work and wait and hope I get my chance."

Reports in Holland have suggested Vitesse have asked for 15million euros for the Ivory Coast international, who has only recently returned from the African Nations Cup.

Bony is the Eredivisie's leading scorer this season with 18 goals and his departure would be a blow to Vitesse's European ambitions.

After challenging near the top of the table for the first half of the season Vitesse have dropped to fifth, albeit still only eight points adrift of leaders PSV Eindhoven.

Last season we were worried that we were stuck with a Dinosaur in Moyes while Liverpool and Everton were disappearing into the distance with their young, spritely managerts, playing football from heaven. Progressive managers, they said. Managers who understand the modern game.........

ood list, some crackers in there. For me, I'd have had Steve McManaman for Liverpool away at Celtic in the UEFA cup in 1997. I was in the ground that night and everyone kept screaming at him to make a pass, but he just kept going and going and going...brilliant, and in the dying minutes too.
