Boyata joins Bolton on loan

Bolton Wanderers have announced the signing long loan.

"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," Bolton manager Owen Coyle told the club's website. "He is a tremendous addition to the squad and his versatility means that he can operate at center-half and full-back. He has got pace and power and is a flexible and dynamic player."

Boyata, 20, joined Manchester City in 2007 from FC Brussels. The Belgium international has made 22 appearances for City, four of which came in the club's successful FA Cup run last season.
