It has been reported that Swansea City boss Garry Monk is excited by the prospect of Wilfried Bony penning new terms.
The Ivory Coast international revealed on Thursday that he is close to signing a one-year extension on his current deal.
“Hopefully it will be agreed before the weekend and done before the game,” Monk said of Bony’s contract extension at his press conference ahead of the Arsenal match.
“That would be nice, but you’ve got to go through the legal procedures to check everything’s in place.
“I’ve had a great relationship with Wilfried and spoke to him a lot in the summer, I know how committed he is as a person and as a professional.
“He enjoys his time at Swansea and this contract is a symbol of how much he enjoys being here and how committed he is to the club.
“It’s a big signing for the club and the player himself but also for his team-mates, and hopefully it will be a big boost to everyone.”
