Alan Pardew talks about Tottenham-linked Yannick Bolasie’s future

The Crystal Palace attacker has been touted as a potential Spurs target, but his manager has stated this is nothing new.

Crystal Palace manager Alan Pardew has swatted aside the transfer rumours linking star attacker Yannick Bolasie with a move away from the club, as reported by FourFourTwo.

The gifted midfielder is supposedly a target for Tottenham this summer, as The Guardian report, with the Eagles star’s future at Selhurst Park being questioned as a result.

Spurs have had issues on the right-hand side of their midfield in recent campaigns, with Andros Townsend not Erik Lamela convincing the White Hart Lane faithful of their merits.

With Bolasie being touted as a potential solution, Pardew has addressed Spurs’ potential interest - but dies not seem worried about the speculation.

"Yannick is linked to other clubs all the time because he's an exciting player," FourFourTwo quote Pardew as saying.

"But he is a Crystal Palace player and is loved by our fans.”

Palace look like a force to be reckoned with this season after a number of promising additions in the summer transfer window, but will hope to hold onto Bolasie if they are to have a successful campaign.

Pardew has been a revelation at Selhurst Park since taking on the job earlier this year, with one of the facets of his team’s play being the width offered by Bolasie and Wilfried Zaha.

Spurs have started the new campaign slowly and are still expected to add more new faces to Mauricio Pochettino’s squad before the window closes.
