Monk rules out Bony sale

Swansea manager Garry Monk has placed a massive price tag on Wilfried Bony in hope that the striker will stay at the club.

The Ivory Coast international has been in demand throughout the current transfer window, with Liverpool touted as a possible destination.

However, the Reds turned their attention to Loic Remy and speculation surrounding Bony has subsided for the time being.

And Monk is keen to keep the frontman at the club, warning suitors that only an ‘astronomical offer’ will see him leave the Liberty Stadium.

“There will be interest in a number of our players – that’s the way it is – but at the end of the day, Wilf is a Swansea City player,” the Swans manager told the South Wales Evening Post.

“Everything that has been said about him this summer has been said in the papers. We are not a paper company, so we’ll just deal with the reality.

“At the moment nobody has come in for Wilf and he is our player.

“But it can’t drag on for the whole summer.

“We don’t want one of those scenarios where it’s going on right up until the last day.

“It has to be made loud and clear what is happening at some point – but at the end of the day he is not for sale unless someone comes in with an astronomical offer.”
