Monk: Swansea not looking to sell Bony

The Ivorian has enjoyed a stunning debut season, scoring 17 Premier League goals, and the Swans boss insists the club have no desire to sell the Ivory Coast international
Garry Monk insists Swansea City are not looking to sell Wilfried Bony, after the Ivorian's impressive debut season in the Premier League.

Bony joined the Liberty Stadium club from Vitesse at the start of the campaign, and netted 17 league goals in 34 appearances to secure Swansea's top-flight status for another year.

The forward scored five times in the last four matches to lead the club to survival and Monk, who was given a three-year contract as permanent boss before the final game of the season, says it will take "an astronomical fee" to covince the club to sell up.

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

"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.

"He's a proper professional. He's not the sort of player to take it easy.

"Every single day he pushes himself and everyone around him. The more players you have in your squad, the better you're going to be."
