Everton & Yannick Bolasie
It’s been a long time since Yannick Bolasie was a regular feature in Everton’s XI.
Now 29, Bolasie has spent the season on loan at Aston Villa.
Over the weekend the Mirror claimed that Bolasie has told Everton he wants to leave.
The DR Congo international is under contract at Goodison Park until 2021. The Mirror reported:
Everton winger Yannick Bolasie has demanded a move to another Premier League club this month.
Bolasie surprisingly called time on his loan spell at Championship club Aston Villa this week, invoking a clause within his contract that allowed him to return Goodison Park four months ahead of schedule.
Bolasie & Crystal Palace
Crystal Palace signed Bolasie back in 2012 from Bristol City for only £350,000.
In 2016, then Everton manager Ronald Koeman bought Bolasie from Palace for £25 million.

I would just like to say a massive thank you to my Aston Villa team mates, the supporters, the staff, along with everyone else associated to the club during my loan period. I've enjoyed my spell at a great and massive football club in Aston Villa and appreciate the club taking me onboard without doing a preseason and getting me back to full fitness. Your support has been unquestionable during my time there and I'm thankful for the commitment, passion and ambition shown by everyone surrounding the pride. I've had some good memories at Villa Park and want to thank everyone who had made that possible. Especially my team mates who made me feel at home and I've now become very close with. I hope Villa can get some solid results from now on to the rest of the Season and wish you all the best of success on promotion!! Yala #UTV #GodBless
Crystal Palace are the bookies’ favourites
Bolasie could soon find himself back in a Crystal Palace shirt, according to Ladbrokes.
With the Everton winger reportedly keen on a move away from Goodison Park, the bookies now make him just 11/8 to rejoin Palace before the winter window slams shut.
That puts them miles ahead of the chasing pack, with Newcastle 6/1 and Burnley and Cardiff 7/1 apiece.
Alex Apati of Ladbrokes said: “Roy Hodgson continues to work wonders at Palace and while Sunday’s victory would have spurred his players on for a solid end to the season, the odds suggest a familiar face could soon be back at Selhurst Park.”
Latest betting: Where will Yannick Bolasie be after January?
Crystal Palace – 11/8
Newcastle – 6/1
Burnley – 7/1
Cardiff – 7/1
