The Ivory Coast striker has netted 20 times this season in all competitions and Monk knows his importance to the team.

Regarding Bony being a possible target of other clubs, Monk said: "It may be that there is interest but you could say that about players in every team.

"Wilf is a Swansea player and we want him here. He is an important player for us and I think he has got a good relationship with our crowd now, too.

"They have warmed to him and he is really enjoying his time with us. We want him as part of our future. We want to build a team around him and players like him, and the good thing is that we are not a selling club.

"We want as many of our players to go to the World Cup as possible. I hope Wilf goes out there, does really well and then comes back here full of confidence."

As for Saturday's trip to Hull, Monk said: "Everyone is fit, and that is good because we have still got a job to do this season."

ah, Fergie is just having another pop at Rooney. He just wants to put him down whenever he gets a chance. Rooney is by far the best English player. Carrick is not far behind, mind. However, by elevating Carrick like that, Sir is having a dig at Wayne. Fergie is well-known for mind games like that. Good to see he's still feisty.
