Manchester City defender Dedryck Boyata is interesting Wigan Athletic.

The People says Latics boss Roberto Martinez wants him to steady a shaky Latics defence, but the move will depend on him 'losing' one of his temporary signings.

Bolton keeper Ali Al Habsi or Manchester United midfielder Tom Cleverley will have to make way.

Boyata will be allowed to leave by City boss Roberto Mancini, who is keen to give him first-team experience for the rest of the season.

Belgian side Standard Liege have also asked about Boyata, but City would prefer him to stay in England.
