Man City to hand Boyata pay-rise

Manchester City are handing Dedryck Boyata a new contract.

The News of the World says the Belgian centre-back, 19, has already done enough to convince the club he is a big part of their plans.

City boss Roberto Mancini surprised many by keeping faith with the rookie for both legs of the Carling Cup semi-final against United.

Boyata is on £1,500 a week with bonuses, but can now expect to see his wages increased to £8,000 a week.
