Bony, the club’s top scorer from 2013/14, has generated plenty of speculation throughout the summer.

Clubs across Europe are said to have shot admiring glances in the direction of the Ivory Coast international, who netted 25 times in all competitions last season.

Swansea have maintained throughout that Bony is not for sale, and they are not about to relax that stance.

Club captain Williams hopes that will be enough to keep interested parties at arm’s length, with Swansea now boasting an enviable array of attacking talent following the arrivals of Gylfi Sigurdsson and Bafetimbi Gomis.

He said after Saturday’s 1-0 victory over Burnley: “It’s not for me to say who comes in, but I don’t want to lose anyone.

“I think we have got a lot of talent at the moment, with plenty of depth on the bench as well.

“You can see how important Bony is to our team. He is looking better than ever and he’s genuinely hungry for goals.

“We are really glad to have him, especially after all the speculation during pre-season.

“He is part of a really tight unit, with good personalities on and off the field.

“I think we have brought in quality and I like the way it looks.”

hould have stayed because we carried him for 6.5 years. And then he has a breakthrough season, and was gone soon after. MU fans, you would be as disgusted had C Ronaldo left in 2007 and not 2009.

ood grief. Someone guessed that the form English player at the moment might be in his national side with some other players? And that's espionage? Now if they discovered that Emile Heskey was going to be in the starting line up.... at right back.... THAT would be espionage. Give it a rest Roy.
