Bony begins City training

Manchester City welcomed Wilfried Bony to training on Monday following the striker's return from the Africa Cup of Nations.

Wilfried Bony has started training with Manchester City having signed for a reported £28million in January.

The Ivory Coast international's arrival from Swansea CIty was confirmed while the player was at the Africa Cup of Nations - a tournament his country eventually won on penalties against Ghana.

Yaya Toure was also part of that trophy-winning side, and City have struggled for form without the pair.

Manuel Pellegrini's men picked up their first win in five fixtures since New Year's Day with a 4-1 win at Stoke City last Wednesday and will welcome the return of two of their star players.

The club posted a vine on their official Twitter account of Bony - the Premier League's top scorer for the calendar year in 2014 - walking out for his first training session.

City face Newcastle United in the Premier League on Saturday.
