Portugal international Renato Sanches has signed for Swansea City on a season's loan from Bayern Munich and the club have had an offer for Wilfried Bony accepted by Manchester City.

Swans boss Paul Clement worked with Sanches, 20, during his time as Bayern's assistant manager.

Bony is set for a medical on Thursday after leaving south Wales for the Etihad for £25m in January 2015.

The fee for his return is thought to be in the region of £12m.

Sanches joined Bayern from Benfica for 35m euros in May 2016.

He made 25 appearances for the German champions last season and was also part of Portugal's Euro 2016 winning squad.

Sanches is away on Under-21 duty and is expected to arrive at the Liberty Stadium next week.

Swansea are thought to have paid a loan fee of around £4m and will also pay most of the midfielder's wages.

Bayern and the player preferred Swansea over several other interested clubs including Juventus and Benfica.

"He is a player I know well having worked with him for six months at Bayern Munich," Clement told the club's website.

"He has not played as much as he would have liked. 

But this move to Swansea and the Premier League will provide him with a real positive development experience."

There is no option in the deal for Sanches' move to be made permanent.

 

Wilfried Bony played on loan for Stoke City against Swansea City in the 2016-17 season


Bony scored 25 Premier League goals for Swansea before his move to Manchester and is being targeted after the Swans accepted an offer from Tottenham Hotspur for last-season's top scorer Fernando Llorente, who is also a target for Chelsea.
