Paris St-Germain striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic is set for talks about his future and expects to stay with the French champions.

The Parisiens' capture of Edinson Cavani has fuelled speculation that the Swede is heading for the Parc des Princes exit.

However, despite being linked with a move back to Serie A and even a switch to the Premier League, the 31-year-old believes his immediate future lies in the French capital.

"My future? I am under contract at PSG," he said.

Likely lads

Swansea's £12m record signing Wilfried Bony has been granted a work permit, the Premier League club have confirmed. The Ivory Coast international, signed from Vitesse Arnhem earlier this month, is now expected to join the Swans for training tomorrow and could play in Saturday's friendly at Reading.

The 24-year-old had continued training with Vitesse while he awaited clearance to complete his move. He can now be registered in time for the club's first Europa League qualifier against Malmo or Hibernian on August 1.

Bony was the top scorer in the Eredivisie last season after netting 31 goals in 30 games for Vitesse.

Done deals

QPR have completed the signing of midfielder Karl Henry from Wolves for a fee believed to be around £1m.

The 30-year-old midfielder has agreed a two-year contract at Loftus Road to become boss Harry Redknapp's third signing of the summer.

The fee was reported to be in the region of £1m but it's understood QPR have agreed a deal with Wolves based on appearances and the success of the club during his two years.

Chelsea have finalised the signing of Cristian Cuevas from Chilean club O'Higgins. Chile U-20 star Cuevas impressed in a trial last year and the 18-year-old has signed a contract at Stamford Bridge until 2018 after announcing he had agreed a deal in February.

Newcastle and Northern Ireland full-back Shane Ferguson has rejoined Birmingham on a season-long loan.
