He’s a 30-year-old international striker who just five years ago signed for champions Manchester City for £28m.

But now, without a club after being released by Swansea City, Wilfried Bony is training with League Two Newport.

He played four times as Ivory Coast reached the quarter-finals of the Africa Cup of Nations this summer – a tournament he won in 2015.

In a social media post Newport boss Mike Flynn said it was “great” to have Bony training with his players.

Flynn added: “Excellent work ethic, professionalism and standards. Boys will take a lot from this.”
