Look at him now: Yannick Bolasie and Crystal Palace

Look at him now: Yannick Bolasie and Crystal Palace - Look at them now

There is no doubt Crystal Palace supporters would have been devastated to see Yannick Bolasie leave the club back in the summer of 2016.

The 29-year-old joined Everton for £26.01m (Transfermarkt) that year after achieving a lot at Selhurst Park.

Bolasie was a part of the Crystal Palace side who won promotion to the Premier League in the 2012/13 season, helping the south London club to establish themselves as a dangerous top-flight outfit once they reached the big time.

Alongside Wilfried Zaha on the other flank, the DR Congo international was a real threat to opposition full-backs with his trickery and skills.

His end product, however, needed much work, though that did not stop Ronald Koeman and Everton swooping in for him.

Unfortunately for the Dutchman, though, it was a transfer that went on to backfire.

Bolasie has spent a good chunk of his Everton career in the stands following a serious knee injury, and now finds himself on loan at Anderlecht after a short stint with Aston Villa in the Championship.

And with Everton’s latest boss Marco Silva having the likes of Richarlison and Bernard to call upon, it does not look like Bolasie will be getting another chance at Goodison Park anytime soon.

Still, you cannot fault Bolasie for seeking a new challenge and viewing a move to Everton as a step up.

Although, in the end, staying at Selhurst Park until he developed into a more productive winger probably would have been the better option.
