Clubs Start Lining Up For Dedryck Boyota

It seems that Sunderland have joined the race to try to sign 19 year-old Manchester City defender Dedryck Boyata on loan.

Dedryck Boyata – Sunderland also interested

But that’s hardly surprising and there will be other big clubs interested in this 6’2″ young defender, as the Belgian looked class when he played for the Manchester City first team just last season.

In one of the games we watched on TV,  he looked City’s best player, and the lad is just 19 years old.

The youngster was also voted the Eastlands club’s Young Player of the Year, and it appears he is still looking to break into Roberto Mancini’s team in 2010-2011.

But he will have increased competition,  with Roberto looking to generally strengthen the City defense this summer, and this is always a problem for the up and coming young players.

In fact it will be interesting to see what happens with the excellent Manchester City Youth Policy, with big money being spent in each and every transfer window by City on top players.

We would expect Mancini to have to send a number of his top youngsters out on loan, so they get some playing time and Dedryck could still be one of those.

The same happens at the other big clubs like Arsenal, Chelsea and Manchester United, who have all invested heavily in youth development – and of course Newcastle seem to want both Tom Cleverley and Danny Welbeck from the Red Devils and Jack Wilshere from the Gunners.

But this news today that Sunderland are interested in Dedryck is hardly surprising,  and there will be more clubs lining up for the lad, if indeed he is made available on loan for next season.

Comments welcome.

    I honestly don’t ever remember seeing this guy play? I just googled some of the mancity threads like and it seems he is highly rated from within. Wouldn’t be a bad loanee in my eyes, certainly if there is a possiblity that STaylor could go in the window. If it comes to a straight choice like I would rather keep Taylor.

    I like it when nice things are being said about fellow countymen. Makes me wonder how our national team can be so crap when we’ve got players like Fellaini, Kompany, Hazard, Vermaelen, … 🙁
