Crystal Palace close to finalising contract extension with Yannick Bolasie

HITC Sport understands that the winger could pen fresh terms by the end of the September.

Crystal Palace are close to finalising a new contract with star winger Yannick Bolasie, HITC Sport understands from sources close to a proposed deal.

The DR Congo ace has emerged as one of the most dynamic and impactful wide-men in the top-flight, and his game has gone from strength to strength under the guidance of Alan Pardew.

Palace have had to fend off interest in Bolasie from a number of clubs, with Tottenham Hotspur said very keen on landing him – as reported by the Daily Mirror.

Spurs first made contact with Palace last season, but the Eagles’ demands of more than £20million put Spurs off from making a firm push for the player.

Now the former Bristol City star – who has two years left on his current deal – is being offered a long-term new deal by the South London outfit.

The Eagles hope that the French-born star, who HITC Sport revealed was in contract talks back in July, will put pen to paper before the end of the month.
