Manchester City’s clear out will continue with Wilfried Bony set to leave the club today, possibly for the Britannia Stadium and Stoke City.
Pep Guardiola has already sent goalkeeper Joe Hart to Serie A side Torino on loan, while French international Samir Nasri is believed to be heading to Sevilla until the end of the season.
Striker Bony has this morning tweeted that he is ready for a new challenge, and odds have been slashed on the Ivorian joining Stoke City before the transfer window closes.
According to The Telegraph, Stoke have entered the race to sign Bony and City are looking for a £2 million fee from any loan deal struck for a player that they paid an initial £25 million for in January 2015.
In his spell at the Etihad Stadium, the 27-year-old scored 10 goals in 46 games in all competitions.
He played for Sparta Prague in the Czech Republic and Dutch side Vitesse Arnhem before switching to the Premier League with a move to Swansea City in 2013.
