Stoke City boss Mark Hughes insists he is not worried about the possibility of Ivory Coast striker Wilfried Bony being sold by Manchester City
The Elephants player is on a season-long loan at the Potters from City, and Hughes has revealed that the parent club have the freedom to try and sell him in the January transfer window.
However, he added: "A lot of things have to come to the fore to make that happen, not least that Wilf will want to go himself and I don't think he will want to.
"I think he sees himself in the Premier League this year and for years to follow. Moving to other shores is dependent on whether he has the desire to and I don't anticipate that happening, certainly not in January.
"There seems to be a significant amount of money being banded about, but I would suggest Wilf isn't short of a few quid."
Asked about a permenant move for Bony, Hughes added: "We are not thinking along those terms at the moment. We are delighted he's here until the end of the season, then we will look at it again."
