“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.
“Bony has shown that he is very committed to this club by signing an extension here.”
“When we talk about the future and progressing it can’t be just talk – there has to be commitment from myself, the players and the club.
“Bony has bought into the direction the club wants to take. He is a big player for us so to tie down his future is fantastic news for everyone connected with the club.
“I’m sure the fans will be more than happy with the extension. For them to see a big player, who they have a lot of affection for, tie down his future with their club is something they will thoroughly enjoy hearing about”, Monk told the club’s official website
