Swansea City replaced departed striker Fernando Llorente, who joined Tottenham Hotspur,  with Wilfried Bony before the transfer window shut on Thursday.

Premier League champions Chelsea were also reported to have made a bid for Llorente but he agreed a two-year contract with Spurs, becoming the North London club's fifth signing of the transfer window.

Swansea announced the signing of Bony, who rejoins the Welsh side after struggling for first-team opportunities at Manchester City.

The 28-year-old Ivory Coast international has signed a two-year deal, with an option of a third, at the Liberty Stadium.

He was the focal point of Swansea's attack during his first spell between 2013 and 2015, netting 34 goals in 70 appearances.
