Bony was part of the Ivory Coast side which lost to Cameroon in an African Cup of Nations qualifying match on Wednesday and Monk will decide what effect travelling back to Wales has had on the striker.

Should Bony be rested, Bafetimbi Gomis is on stand by to replace him as Swansea chase a fourth successive Premier League victory.

Marvin Emnes could also join the squad for the first time after recovering from hamstring trouble, but Leon Britton has been ruled out for at least four more weeks with a knee injury.

New Swansea City striker Modou Barrow scored his first goal for Swansea City's Under 21 side just hours after completing his transfer deadline move from Swedish side Ostersunds FK.

The 21 year-old Gambian received international clearance in time to net his first goal for his new club during a 3-2 victory over Birmingham City.

Barrow had been in Swansea for some time before finally putting pen to paper on a performance related contract for an undisclosed fee.

Swansea City's development boss Chris Llewellyn told the club website:

"I'm pleased for him (Modou), It was touch and go whether he would play as we didn't receive the international clearance until late afternoon, but he did okay and scored his goal.

The 27 year-old had been looking to secure a new club after being told by Swans boss Garry Monk he was no longer part of his future plans.

Canas made 35 appearances for the Swans last season after signing from Real Betis on a free transfer.

An official statement from Swansea City thanked Canas for his services to the club, and wished him well for the future.
