Swansea City have agreed a fee in the region of £30m to sell Cote d’Ivoire international Wilfried Bony to Manchester City.

Bony, 26, joined Swansea from Dutch club Vitesse Arnhemfor a club record £12m fee in 2013 and has scored 25 goals in 54 league games.

He is on international duty with Ivory Coast ahead of next week’s Africa Cup of Nations (Afcon) in Equatorial Guinea but the Premier League champions are confident there would not be complications with personal terms and the striker’s medical. Both clubs hopes to complete the transfer in the next 48 hours.

The BBC Sport reports a £28m deal- £25m cash up front with a further £3m in performance-related add-ons.

It however takes down Swansea’s record sale of £15m that Liverpool paid the Welsh club for Joe Allen in August 2012.

City were hit with Uefa sanctions last year after they failed to comply with Financial Fair Play (FFP) rules including an outlay of £50m across the summer and winter transfer windows once money from sales is taken into account.

The signing of defender Eliaquim Mangala, midfielder Fernando, and goalkeeper Willy Caballero last summer cost them £48m, but they sold Jack Rodwell to Sunderland for a reported £10m and midfielder Javi Garcia joined Zenit St Petersburg for £13m.

Bony, who has scored 9 goals in 20 league matches this season, was the Premier League’s top scorer in 2014 with 20 goals.
