Wilfried Bony will spend the rest of the season on loan at Stoke.
The 27-year-old has failed to secure a place in Pep Guardiola's Manchester City side and has joined Swansea in a bid for regular first-team football.
The 27-year-old scored 35 times in 70 matches for Swansea but he has struggled for game time at City and he joins a Stoke squad without a win in three Premier League matches this season.
"Bringing Wilfried in was a no-brainer for us to be perfectly honest, because he knows the Premier League and has scored plenty of goals at this level," Stoke boss Mark Hughes told the club's official website.
"He has power, speed and very good physical attributes which will undoubtedly help us, and his technical and finishing skills are outstanding too.
"Eighteen months ago he was being bought for a hugely significant amount of money, so we know that we are bringing in a top quality striker.
"Everybody is aware of Wilfried and what he is capable of, and it was no surprise that one of the bigger clubs came in for him on the back of his performances for Swansea - the only surprise has been that he didn't enjoy the success with Manchester City that we all thought he would."
