Bolasie offer would have to be ‘extraordinary’ for any transfer

Alan Pardew

New Crystal Palace manager Alan Pardew admits Yannick Bolasie could leave, but doesn't expect any move to happen.

New Crystal Palace manager Alan Pardew has said it would take an “extraordinary bid” for them to consider selling Yannick Bolasie, according to TalkSport

The winger has been highly impressive for Palace in recent weeks, despite his side's struggles in the Premier League.

Those displays have led to interest from a whole host of other clubs, including Liverpool, Everton and even Newcastle United, the club Pardew has just left for Palace.

The new man in charge at Selhurst Park has now made his stance clear on any potential move for the Democratic Republic of Congo winger, believing that any side looking to sign him wouldn’t be willing to meet their asking price.

"Like with any player you can never say never, and I learnt that at Newcastle losing Andy Carroll on the last day of the window," said Pardew.

"So never say never, but I think it would take an extraordinary bid to take him away from this football club in the situation we are in, and I would be very surprised if any club wanted to make that phone call."

The winger is currently at the African Cup of Nations with his international side, so any move during the January transfer window would be dependent upon that situation.

He was previously been linked with a move to Everton during the summer, who are reportedly keen to add a winger with pace to their squad.
