Wilfried Bony wants to stay, not keen on Besiktas

Wilfried Bony wants to stay, not keen on Besiktas

The 29-year-old wants to stay with Swansea and help them get back to the Premier League, according to reports.

Swansea City star Wilfried Bony is reportedly willing to stay at the club, despite being linked with a move away from the Liberty Stadium.

The ?BBC report that Bony has attracted the interest of Besiktas, who reached the round of 16 in the UEFA Champions League last season.

However, the Ivory Coast striker wants to help the Welsh side to return to the Premier League, as he wants to repay the club’s faith in him.

Last season was miserable both for the Ivorian and for his club – he scored just two league goals in 15 appearances before suffering a serious knee injury in February which ruled him out for the remainder of the season.

Even if the Ivorian wants to stay at Swansea, the Swans may feel that they need to offload him. He is one of their top earners, and they have to adapt to life in the Championship, where their finances will inevitably be more strained than in their Premier League years.
