Denayer’s ambitions lie at the Etihad, where he believes he has a chance at finally breaking into the first team.
He told the Daily Record: “I hope next season to be ready to play for City. If I ever get the chance to play with Vincent Kompany then I know I will have made it.
“My view is that I will return to City next season.”
