    Celtic sign Dedryck Boyata on four-year deal

    By: Newsroom Staff on 02 Jun, 2015 10:52

  • CELTIC are delighted to announce the signing of Belgian internationalist Dedryck Boyata, who has joined the club on a four-year deal from Manchester City.

    The 24-year-old defender becomes Ronny Deila’s first signing of the close season, and will join up with his new team-mates later this month when they report back for pre-season training ahead of the UEFA Champions League qualifiers.

    Dedryck first joined Manchester City as a youth player back in 2006, and after coming through the ranks at the club, made his first-team debut in January 2010. The following season he made 17 appearances for City, and picked up an FA Cup winner’s medal.

    He subsequently had a season-long loan at Bolton Wanderers, while he also had a short spell on loan with Dutch side, FC Twente, before returning to Manchester City.

    And speaking exclusively to Celtic TV after signing for the Scottish Champions, Dedryck said: “It feels really good. Celtic are a very big club and it feels good to be a part of it.

    “The manager came to see me in Manchester and I spoke to him about having me here and all the ideas he had for me playing for the team.

    “So I was very pleased with his plans and from that point I thought that moving to Celtic would be a good idea and we tried to do everything right for me to move here.”

    Everyone at Celtic wishes Dedryck all the best for the next four years as he joins the Scottish champions.

    More reaction from Dedryck Boyata to follow on the official Celtic website.
