STARS IN EUROPE - IVORY COAST - CLUB - Stoke City sign Wilfried Bony on loan
Wilfried Bony has scored six Premier League goals for Manchester City
Stoke City have signed striker Wilfried Bony on a season-long loan deal from Premier League rivals Manchester City.
Ivorian Bony, 27, has made 15 league starts since joining City for £28m from Swansea in January 2015, but had not featured under new boss Pep Guardiola.
b Potters manager Mark Hughes said.
"He has power, speed and very good physical attributes."
Stoke targeted Ivory Coast international Bony as there had been no development in their attempt to sign West Brom forward Saido Berahino.
Last week, West Ham United manager Slaven Bilic said he was interested in signing Bony, who has three years left to run on his contract at Etihad Stadium.
