City on Bossaerts:
Belgian defender Mathias Bossaerts joined the Blues from the same Academy that produced City captain Vincent Kompany, Anderlecht in 2012.
Mathias is thought of as one of the most promising defensive talents in the Academy, captaining the EDS for their 2013/14 pre-season tour of Croatia.
An intelligent player who can speak Flemish, French and English fluently, Mathias has represented Belgium at youth level and will be hoping to cement a regular place in Patrick Vieira's side in 2014/15.
Bossaerts made 11 appearances for the EDS last season, including four matches in the UEFA Youth League.
