Swansea manager Graham Potter says Wilfried Bony is close to a return to training this week, as he bids to recover from a hamstring injury.
The 29-year-old Ivory Coast international arrived from Manchester City in August 2017 and struggled to find form, scoring just two Premier League goals last season before he damaged his anterior cruciate ligament in a game at Leicester on 3rd February.
Potter said, as quoted by the club's website: “Wilfried [Bony] will join the group for part of the session on Thursday. He has been working hard with the medical staff and he will be involved in some of what we do.”
He added: “We will have to see how he adapts to that and how he responds to the football load, but he has put in a lot of work to get to this point. I don’t think it’s wise to put a timescale on when he will come back.”
Swansea will be hoping Bony can rediscover his form from his initial first spell at the club between in 2013 and 2015.
He scored 34 goals in 70 games for the Welsh side before earning a £28m move to Manchester City. However, following two below par seasons at the Etihad, and a failed loan move to Stoke, he ended up back in South Wales.
