Yannick Bolasie: Everton winger reveals Middlesbrough move is off

The 31-year-old winger spent last season on loan at Sporting Lisbon and Everton have been trying to shift him off the books.

Bolasie could not find a club outside England to take him before the global transfer window, but a mad scramble for his signature has ensued on the last day of the domestic transfer window.

Whelan insists that Bolasie must use his time among the Everton squad to get back up to full fitness and suggests that he could even play his first game for the club since 2018. All I want to do is say thank you to Neil Warnock (appreciate you so much) and wish Middlesbrough all the best this season.

'Real ones know I speak from the heart nothing more nothing less'.

He will most likely leave Goodison as a free agent next summer, but he would have hoped to play some games in the previous year of his contract - hence the desire to leave on loan.

Boro boss Neil Warnock worked closely with Bolasie at Crystal Palace and it is believed the wide-midfielder is keen on a switch to the Riverside this transfer window. Instead the Everton winger opted for Aston Villa, helping them to the Championship Play-Offs.

The Democratic Republic of Congo worldwide is yet to feature for Everton this season and is not in the plans of manager Carlo Ancelotti.

A move to Boro represents a chance for Bolasie to rekindle his career as Everton looks to move on players deemed surplus to requirements.

"He is doing well, training well and professionally", the Italian manager said of Bolasie.

'He is not part of the squad. He can train with us if he's not able to find a club until the end of the market, and if he stays here of course we are going to train him.

He may now however have to stay put until January unless he can seal a move to Russian Federation before tomorrow or to the Portuguese league before October 25.
