De Guzman has won a place in Holland's World Cup squad, whilst Bony is going to Brazil with Ivory Coast.

A number of clubs have been linked with a move for top scorer Bony, while De Guzman's future needs to be resolved after his second successive year-long loan from Villarreal came to an end.

The Dutchman is hopeful that Swansea will turn the move into a permanent switch, saying: "I had a good chat with Garry, he knows how I feel about Swansea and my situation here.

"I have two more years left at Villarreal and now it's negotiation time. Hopefully that will happen sooner rather than later.

"I'd like to stay. I'm happy here. Whether it's another loan or permanent I don't know, it's not my choice.

"There are a lot of people involved but hopefully we can sit around a table as soon as possible and see what happens."

Monk has admitted he wants De Guzman to remain and added: "I've spoken to him and I like him - he's settled here and he's a good player.

"We will have to look at it to see which best way suits us and deal with it from there.

"I feel he needs someone to help him to improve because the football side of it is very, very good.

"I've spoken to him about the defensive side of his game which he needs to improve on but I think he wants to get better and I think we can get him better."

Bony

And, like De Guzman, Bony sees his future in south Wales too.

"I will be a Swansea player," said Bony ahead of linking up with Ivory Coast.

"I don't react to transfer speculation. I just focus on my job, that's all I think of.

"I have three years' contract with the club and I just focus on my job.

"If something happens we would have to decide."

Monk has always insisted that the club will not be forced into selling Bony, who only arrived from Vitesse Arnhem last summer.

"I think we can hold on to him. He's a good guy, but money talks," he said.

"It would have to be an astronomical fee for him to leave though and we're not a selling club. We're not in any debt. We don't need to lose anyone so we're in a strong position."

ven if United were to sign CR7 & Messi to play upfront, the fact remains Fletcher and Cleverly are playing in midfield. That's where the problem is. Fletcher is too slow with an awful pass, while Cleverly is simply rubbish
