Manchester City have completed the signing of Swansea City striker Wilfried Bony for £28m. Bony joined Swansea for £12m from Vitesse Arnhem in 2013 and was the Premier League's top scorer in 2014 with 20 goals.

The two clubs agreed the terms of the transfer at the weekend, with £25m cash up front and a further £3m in performance-related add-ons.
The deal makes Bony one of the most expensive African footballers in history.

Bony is on international duty with Ivory Coast at the Africa Cup of Nations and could potentially have to wait until mid-February before he can make his City debut.Bony has agreed a four-and-a-half-year deal at Etihad Stadium and will wear the number 14 shirt.
