Swansea City striker Wilfried Bony has put an end to the speculation linking him with a move to Liverpool or Tottenham during the January transfer window by committing his future to the Liberty Stadium with a new contract until June 2018, the Wales club confirmed.
Both the Merseysiders and Spurs were said to be interested in securing his services during the summer after the striker scored 25 goals in his first season in the Premier League last term.
With Brendan Rodgers struggling to fill the void left by Luis Suarez's departure to Barcelona, some reports claimed the Reds may renew their efforts to sign a forward during the January transfer window, with Bony himself and Porto star Jackson Martinez among the candidates.
But the Ivory Coast striker recently revealed his intention to commit his future to Swansea with a new deal, and the club have now all but ended the rumours after announcing the deal.
"Club record signing Wilfried Bony has today given Swansea City a massive boost ahead of Saturday's trip to Manchester City by signing a new one-year extension at the Liberty," the club confirmed.
"The striker has put pen to paper on a contract which will tie him to the club until the summer of June 2018."
Meanwhile, Swansea manager Garry Month has expressed his delight with the agreement: "It's great news for the club. I've spoken a lot about what Bony has brought to the club not just on the pitch but off it as well.
"These types of players are ones that we do our best to keep at the club for a long time. But it's also important that we see commitment from that player towards the club, his team-mates and the fans."
