Swansea fans react as Wilfried Bony departs for Al Arabi

Wilfried Bony has joined Qatari outfit Al Arabi on loan as Swansea relieve a huge amount of pressure on their wage bill – it is thought that the striker rakes in around £120,000-a-week at the Liberty Stadium.

The former Manchester City striker is their highest earner and the Swans have surely been keen to offload him for a while; he may have played his last game for the club already, as his contract expires in the summer and he will spend the remainder of the season at Al Arabi.

Once one of the hottest shots in the Premier League, the Ivorian scored 26 goals in his first two seasons with the Swans before completing a switch to the Etihad Stadium – then it all started to go wrong.

The Swansea number 2 flopped in sky blue and was subsequently sent out on loan to Stoke before returning to Wales for £12m in 2017, however his second spell with the club hasn’t gone quite as well as the first.

He will always have a special place in Swansea hearts for what he accomplished in his first two years at the club, but he won’t be too much of a loss to them now.
