Swansea City boss Michael Laudrup is happy with Wilfried Bony's gradual adjustment to the Premier League.

The Dane argues the switch from ­Holland to England is a massive one because of the gulf in class between the respective leagues.

He said: "Wilfried's come in from the Dutch league which is not as ­competitive as the Premier League.

"I don't want to push him too much.

"He's adapting the way I expected him to - even if people say money has to be the equal of performances and goals scored.

"But I know it is not easy for ­everybody to adapt quickly, ­particularly when you play up front.

"With respect to the Dutch ­defenders, it is a big difference over here - especially with the league start we had against Manchester ­United, Tottenham, ­Liverpool and ­Arsenal."
