Bolton sign Boyata on loan

Bolton have signed defender Dedryck Boyata on a season-long loan from Manchester City, the club have confirmed.

Boyata, 20, made his senior international debut for Belgium against Austria last year and becomes the sixth player to join Owen Coyle's squad in the summer transfer windo after failing to make the breakthrough into the first-team at City.

The Bolton manager 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.

"To bring in a player of Dedryck's age and quality is something, as we have shown before, that we like to do. He is a tremendous addition to the squad and his versatility means that he can operate at centre-half and full-back. He has got pace and power and is a flexible and dynamic player."

Speaking exclusively to the club website, Boyata said: "I'm really looking forward to working with the manager. I have seen how he got the best out of young players like Jack Wilshere and Daniel Sturridge.

"I am only 20-years-old and I'm still learning and trying to improve. To come to Bolton Wanderers for a loan period is a great opportunity to do that."
