Eredivisie star hints at January exit

Vitesse forward Wilfried Bony has added fuel to speculation linking him with a big club move in January.

The Ivory Coast international only joined the Eredivisie side in January 2011, but is already being tipped to leave Vitesse for greener pastures.

Following his hat-trick in the 3-3 draw with Heerenveen that took his total goal tally to eight, the player reiterated his desire to leave Arnhem for a bigger club.

“I know that clubs follow me,” Bony confessed to reporters following yesterday’s match against Heerenveen.

“But as long as nobody is officially reported at Vitesse, I can say little about my future. The club knows that I am open to a departure, but there must be serious interest for me.”

The 23-year-old was on the verge of joining Aston Villa in the summer transfer window, while Chelsea reportedly see Bony as an ideal replacement for Didier Drogba.

The Ivorian forward joined Vitesse from Sparta Prague in the winter of 2011 and he has been in scintillating form ever since.

In total, the player has scored 28 goals in 47 Eredivisie appearances for the club from Arnhem.
