Last summer, several clubs from the Premier League were said to be interested in hiring Dedryck Boyata, but Celtic were not keen on listening to offers below their valuation.

The Belgium international’s contract with the Bhoys will run down at the end of the season and a renewal is very unlikely.

Friday’s edition of Het Nieuwsblad takes a look at the Belgian players who could leave their clubs in the winter market and one of them is Boyata.

Regarding the centre-back, it’s explained the probability of him leaving Brendan Rodgers’ side this month in 50%.

It’s claimed he has a market value of €2m, which will become nil in the summer because the 28-year-old has no plans to extend his contract. 

The report mentions the defender has decided to leave the Scottish Premiership side and try ‘something new’, but the question is whether he will leave in the ongoing transfer window or after this campaign.

For Boyata the situation is similar to the summer, if no club shows up willing to match Celtic’s demands… it’s not happening.
