New signing Wilfried Bony trains with Manchester City

Wilfried Bony has joined up with his Manchester City team-mates for the first time since signing for the Premier League champions.

City signed Bony from Swansea on January 14, but the striker has only just returned to England after helping Ivory Coast win the Africa Cup of Nations.

Although his international team-mate Yaya Toure trained with City last week, Bony’s first appearance was delayed until Monday because of an issue with his visa.

With the problem resolved, Bony joined up with the rest of the team on Monday before being given a tour of the Etihad campus by Toure and captain Vincent Kompany.

Bony, who has been named in the Champions League squad, could make his debut for City against Newcastle on Saturday.
