As per a report from Football Insider tonight, Crystal Palace are keen on a reunion with Everton winger Yannick Bolasie.
Bolasie back to Everton
29-year-old winger Bolasie made a surprise return to Goodison Park yesterday, after cutting his loan agreement with Championship outfit Aston Villa short.

The DR Congo international struggled for consistency and game-time for much of his half-season at Villa Park, having managed starts in just 9 of the Claret and Blue’s 28 league outings to this point in the campaign.
However, with the likes of Richarlison, Theo Walcott, Bernard and Ademola Lookman all sitting ahead of Bolasie in the attacking pecking-order at Goodison Park, an increase in playing time for the powerful wide-man over the second-half of the season looks highly-unlikely as things stand.
As such, Everton would no doubt be happy to sanction another departure for Bolasie this month.
And, as per the aforementioned report from Football Insider this evening, one club keen to take advantage of the African’s questionable status in Marco Silva’s squad are Crystal Palace.
Bolasie previously lined out for the Eagles from 2012 to 2016, during which time he established himself as a firm fan favourite.
And Football Insider claim that Palace boss Roy Hodgson, on the lookout for reinforcements out wide, views the Everton man as the ideal addition to his squad.
As such, a formal offer on the part of the capital outfit is said to be at the ready.
