Swansea are ready to ditch Wilfried Bony’s £19million release clause to offload the unsettled striker.

Mirror Sport understands a number of Premier League clubs have already been sounded out about a deal, with the Welsh club relaxing their stance on his asking price.

Despite being talked up by boss Garry Monk last week, the 25-goal hitman has made it clear to the Swans that he wants to move to a bigger club.

He now fears that the opportunity is slipping away - despite a month of the transfer window remaining - and that the fee being demanded is scaring off potential suitors.

Liverpool and Tottenham have both shown interest in him. Reds boss Brendan Rodgers instead moved for QPR’s £8.5m Loic Remy last month, but the deal fell apart when a heart problem allegedly showed up in the Frenchman’s medical.
