Yannick Bolasie hints he will fight for Everton’s place next season


Everton winger Yannick Bolasie has left a big clue on where he will play his football next season, apparently hinting at a stint at Goodison Park.

The DR Congo international was responding to a fan who asked the 31-year-old where he will play his football next season.

He then clarified that he would be at Goodison Park unless Everton dramatically ramps up work on their new stadium’s development.

Bolasie’s primary message was simple, it will be in Everton.

He hasn’t played a match for Everton since May 2018 and has since been loaned to Aston Villa, Anderlecht and Sporting Lisbon with varying degrees of success.

It now looks like he’s open to another crack with Everton this season in what is the final year of his contract at Merseyside.

Of course, it is possible that Carlo Ancelotti is ready and willing to give Bolasie a chance to return to the fold of Everton.

But it seems unlikely. Unfortunately, despite Bolasie’s good nature and unmistakable ability, injuries seem to have ravaged his Everton career and it’s hard to see him return to the first team.

However, if he’s ready to fight for his place, Everton fans will no doubt wish him luck. If he ends up being a surprise return kid, no one will complain.
