Celtic centre-back reveals his future amid interest from England


Dedryck Boyata has revealed he will settle his future at Celtic after the conclusion of the World Cup in Russia.

The 27-year-old Belgian international center-back just entered into the final year of his contract at Parkhead and was reportedly monitored by Serie A side Lazio in his nation’s 3-0 over Panama this week.

Boyata has held talks with the seven-in-a-row champions about a contract extension but said: “Right now, I am concentrating on the World Cup. I am not thinking about my future.

“I still have a year on my contract and will see after the summer if I continue with Celtic again.”

Boyata, signed from Manchester City in 2015 for £600,000 by Ronny Deila, will retain his position in the Belgian’s central defence against Tunisia on Saturday, but fall down the pecking order if Vincent Kompany heals from injury in time for the final Group G game against England a week today.
