Swansea midfielder Britton: Bony in Lukaku, Benteke class

Swansea City midfielder Leon Britton has hailed the impact of Wilfried Bony this season.

Britton reckons Bony is just as good as Belgium's big men Romelu Lukaku and Christian Benteke.

Britton said: "If he carries on scoring the goals, Wilfried is in that bracket of striker.

"If you are scoring 20 goals a season that's a good amount for a team not in the top half of the table at the moment. So it will be a fantastic season for him.

"The way we play and the size of the team, we are not the most physical and with Wilfried in the team he gives us that physical strength.

"He gives us a platform to build from. The ball goes up to him, he holds it up, he's very strong and he lets us get up the pitch.

"He's been fantastic for us this year when you consider he's come form the Dutch league and he's new to this country.

"It was a big money move for ourselves paying £12m for him. He's been fantastic for us, especially with Michu being out for long periods.

"Michu was our top scorer last season and Bony has stepped in and scored a lot of goals. Now Michu is fit you have got a lot of goal threat up the top end now."
