Yannick Bolasie states his intentions after signing new Crystal Palace deal

The electrifying winger is hoping for much more of the same after agreeing a new contract.

Crystal Palace completed a deal to tie down Yannick Bolasie's immediate future to the club over the weekend.

According to the BBC, the Congolese international agreed a new three-and-a-half year deal at Selhurst Park, which will take him through to 2019.

The news comes as a delight to followers of the London club, while the 26-year-old himself also appears in good spirits after sealing his stay down south.

Speaking to Crystal Palace TV at Vicarage Road on Sunday, Bolasie insisted of his delight at pledging his future to the club, and built upon his intentions between now and next summer.

"I'm delighted to sign a new contract," Bolasie said. "I think now it's all about getting on the pitch and doing well for the team, so that's what I'll try to do, and replicate what I've done last season."

The French-born attacker gave his thoughts on the deal following Palace's 1-0 win over Watford, where a Yohan Cabaye penalty ensured that they maintained their excellent start to the season.

The win over the Hornets also went some ways to maintaining Alan Pardew's remarkable away record since returning to take the managerial reigns at Crystal Palace.

Through 12 Premier League fixtures since Pardew took charge, his team have won 9 games, including the scalps of a number of the competition's most feared teams.
