Bolton sign City man, official!
Bolton Wanderers have finally secured a season loan (well for the rest of the season) of Manchester City’s Dedryck Boyata. The news was announced a short time ago on the official Manchester City website.
Boyata has been on Bolton’s radar for some time and has chosen to spend the rest of the season with the trotters after finding his chances at the Etihad limited. Boyata is just 20 years old but is rated very highly by most. The Belgian defender has also appeared for his country at International level.
The youngster is a flexible player who can play all across the back four which is great news for Bolton after losing yet another defender through injury on Wednesday (Alonso).
Coyle was delighted to sign Boyata, he said: “I am delighted that we have completed the loan deal for Dedryck, because there was interest from a number of other clubs in taking him on loan.
“He is a tremendous addition to the squad and his versatility means he can operate at centre-half and full-back.
“He has got pace and power and is a flexible and dynamic player.”
The move could be just in time to see Cahill leave Bolton for Arsenal if Wenger feels he wants to raise his purported £6 million offer which was rejected earlier this week.
