New Swansea City signing Wilfried Bony reveals that he has spoken to international teammate Didier Drogba regarding his move to the Liberty Stadium.

Swansea City striker Wilfried Bony has revealed that Ivory Coast teammate Didier Drogba has backed his move to the Liberty Stadium.

Bony completed a £12m transfer from Vitesse Arnhem on Thursday, and the prolific frontman has admitted that he sought advice from the former Chelsea player after sealing a deal to move to the Premier League.

The 24-year-old told reporters: "Didier had a big career and scored a lot of goals in the Premier League, but I hope to do the same or more.

"I have spoken to him. He said congratulations and that he is proud of me. He is a big inspiration for me. I have to listen to his advice and try to do what I can by giving my best.

"Didier said Swansea was a good team who play very good football. There are not many teams in the UK who play like that. He said he knows how I play and I will enjoy playing for Swansea. He thinks I have made a good decision."

Bony has scored eight goals in 20 appearances for his national side.
