Yannick Bolasie could make a surprise loan deal to Europe

Bolasie is running out of time to seal a move away from Goodison Park

Yannick Bolasie could yet seal a deadline day move away from Everton.

The 29-year-old had spent the early part of this season on loan with Aston Villa, but returned to Goodison Park earlier in January in the hope he could force his way back into Everton’s first team.

Having been told he’s not part of Marco Silva’s plans, the forward has been looking to complete a move away. With time running out to find a transfer, it’s now being reported that the former Crystal Palace winger could seal a switch to Anderlecht.

The Times’ Paul Joyce has tweeted that the 34-times Belgian champions are keen to take Bolasie on a loan deal for the remainder of the season, with Everton keen for the move to be done.

The DR  Congo international is also thought to have attracted interest from within England, with Newcastle and former club Palace both linked with a late transfer window move for him. A move to Turkey was also thought to be an option at one point, though these rumours now appear to have dried up.

Anderlecht appear to be Bolasie’s only option for now. If a deal is not agreed by the 11pm deadline, he is likely to spend the remainder of the season frozen out of the Everton first team.
