Jason Denayer discusses his future with Celtic loan deal set to expire

Jason Denayer wants guarantees over his future at Manchester City this summer.

Manchester City defender Jason Denayer has told Belgian TV channel RTBF that he wants assurances over his role at the Etihad Stadium this summer.

Denayer, 19, has spent the season on loan at Scottish champions Celtic with limited first team opportunities available at City, and he's proven his quality this term.

The Belgian centre half has been a mainstay in Ronny Deila's defence at Celtic, forging a watertight partnership with Virgil van Dijk at the back.

Whilst being solid defensively, Denayer has also managed to find the net on six occasions for Celtic, proving to be superb in both penalty areas.

Now though, Denayer's loan deal is set to expire, leaving him to return to Manchester City as he looks to compete with the likes of Vincent Kompany, Martin Demichelis and Eliaquim Mangala at centre back.

Denayer would almost certainly lie behind those three players in the pecking under Manuel Pellegrini, but Denayer isn't ready to sit on the sidelines.

Speaking to RTBF, Denayer admitted that he will look for guarantees from City about his playing time - and if their response isn't satisfactory, Denayer will search for a 'solution'. 

"I will begin the pre-season preparations with City," said Denayer. "Then we'll see. I obviously want to have a chance to play. If I receive no guarantee we will find a solution," he added.

Celtic fans - and manager Deila - will be hoping that Denayer is available for another season-long loan deal next term, but for now, his future lies with City ahead of a big pre-season for the defender.
