Skysports.com understands Bristol City are lining up a loan move for young Manchester City defender Dedryck Boyata.
The Belgian centre-back, a youth product at the Premier League club, is unlikely to feature in Roberto Mancini's first-team plans this season, with the more experienced stoppers at the manager's disposal likely to take precedence.
Boyata made his Premier League debut for City in January 2010 but has only notched up nine league appearances since, the majority of which were from the bench.
The 20-year-old, capped once for his country, could help strengthen City boss Keith Millen's backline, with the manager having already stated his intention to bolster that area of his squad.
