Manchester City misfit Wilfried Bony could leave the club in the very near future, with a loan move to West Ham United on the cards.
According to the Daily Telegraph, the deal would last until January before Bony leaves the Premier League altogether for a lucrative deal in China.
The Hammers have been hit with injury problems, and were without seven first team players for yesterday’s game against Bournemouth.
Despite the 1-0 win, manager Slaven Bilic is looking to add to his attacking options with recent record signing Andre Ayew and England international Andy Carroll both on the sidelines.
Telegraph Sport understands that a deal has already been struck for Bony to leave City and move to the cash-rich Chinese Super League next January on a highly-lucrative permanent transfer which will bring to an end his frustrating spell at the club following his £25million switch from Swansea City in January 2015.
However it is hoped that City may be willing to allow Bony to leave on loan until then with West Ham wanting to cover for their record £20million signing Andre Ayew who is out until December, at least, with a thigh injury.
Bony has failed to make the squad for both of Pep Guardiola’s first two league games in charge, and he has disappointed in his 20 months at the Etihad Stadium.
He may not be the only one on the move, with the futures of Joe Hart, Samir Nasri and Eliaquim Mangala also up in the air.
