Swansea's Bony admits he is still adjusting to the 'best league in the world'

Swansea City striker Wilfried Bony says he is still adapting to life in the English Premier League.

The 24-year old Ivory Coast international joined the Swans from Dutch club Vitesse Arnhem for £12million in the summer and has so far managed to score a total of 10 goals in all competitions.

Four of those have come in five starts in the Premier League and even though he has performed impressively, Bony suggests he is only getting accustomed to the rigors of top flight English football.

"I am just adjusting to the best league in the word," Bony told Sky Sports.

"The challenge is to convince people because of the money the club paid for me - it has not been easy but I am getting there.

"The manager trusts me and has a plan to use me to help me find my feet in the league, scoring twice in the league against Stoke City on Saturday was very good, I want to score every week for the club but I know that is difficult to do but I will try.

"I believe in myself and hope to make my name in the League."
