Swansea City are ready to write off the outstanding £16m balance on Wilfried Bony’s £28m transfer to Manchester City to take the striker back this summer.
The 28-year-old has failed to impress in the north-west since his move to the Etihad in January 2015 and incoming City manager Pep Guardiola has made it clear the striker does not feature in his plans.
Manchester City will allow the Ivory Coast international to leave this summer, and the player is open to the idea of returning to the Liberty Stadium.
Bony made a name for himself in the Premier League after moving to south Wales from Dutch club Vitesse Arnhem in 2013.
But since his move to Manchester he has managed just 10 goals, a contribution which will have cost City £12m if he does make the move back to wales.
