Manchester City defender Dedryck Boyata has signed a new two-year contract with the Premier League champions.
Boyata has barely featured for Manchester City over the past few seasons and has spent a fair amount of his time out on loan at Bolton and FC Twente, so it is initially a surprise to see him sign a new deal. However, the defender arrived at City back in 2007, meaning he can be registered as a homegrown player - a key point when taking in to consideration City's recent Financial Fair Play punishment which includes a reduced Champions League squad, transfer fee and wage bill restrictions. Expect Boyata to be the new back-up to Pablo Zabaleta, with Micah Richards likely to be released this summer. Thu, May 29, 2014 04:19:00 AM

Manchester City are set to be without their two first-choice right-backs for the trip to Fulham after injuries to Micah Richards and Pablo Zabaleta.

This news leave Dedryck Boyata, a natural centre-half, as Pellegrini's only option at right-back ahead of the Fulham match. The 23-year-old hasn't played for City in the Premier League since May 2011 but will have to fill in this weekend. At under £7.5million in the Yahoo fantasy game he represents good value if you want to cover the potential City clean sheet.
