The Ivory Coast international has completed a £27 million move to the Etihad Stadium as Manuel Pellegrini boosts his striking options in a bid to retain the Premier League

the Premier League champions finally reached an agreement with Swansea City F.C over a £27 million fee on Saturday evening, and the Ivory Coast international has now penned terms on a £75,000-a-week contract.

Injury to topscorer Sergio Aguero, coupled with the lack of form and fitness of Edin Dzeko and Stevan Jovetic, forced Manuel Pellegrini to field James Milner up front recently but City have moved quickly to secure a player they hope can boost their strike force in the race for the Premier League title.

 

Bony, who could be unavailable until mid-February if Ivory Coast reach the final of the Africa Cup of Nations, was the Premier League’s topscorer in 2014 with 20 goals, meaning City now have the three leading scorers of the past year on their books (Bony, Aguero, Yaya Toure).
