According to Sky Sports News, Bony is the highest earner at Swansea, who were keen to get his wages off their books for the remainder of the season.

The striker only recently returned to action after being out since February 2018 due to a knee injury.

Bony scored 34 goals in 70 games during his first stint with the Swans, before joining Manchester City in 2015.

He returned in August 2017 but has managed just three goals in 26 appearances.

A club statement read: “Everyone at Swansea City would like to thank Wilfried for his service to the club over his two spells, and wish him well in his new challenge.”
