Not long ago, Manchester City defender Laporte also blessed Van Dyke, who is about to undergo knee ligament repair surgery, through his personal social networking site.
Laporte wrote on his personal social networking site: "Sorry brother. I wish you a speedy recovery. Even if we are competitors, we will never feel interesting or happy about this."
Laporte suffered a serious injury against Brighton in the opening phase of the Premier League last year. He suffered a knee injury and missed most of the season due to injury.
