Yannick Bolasie has seemingly tipped Giannelli Imbula to be a success at Stoke City on social media site Twitter.
According to the Guardian, Imbula is set to make a club record move to Stoke in a transfer worth £18 million.
And Crystal Palace winger Bolasie reacted to the mooted move on Twitter by posting a simple message, which suggested he thinks the 23-year-old will be a good addition for Mark Hughes’ men.

Imbula’s impeding arrival at Stoke is another signal of the progress that the Potters have made in recent years.
Stoke have made a series of high profile additions in recent transfer windows, and Imbula’s move is an eye catching one.
The 23-year-old has developed a big reputation at Porto, where his powerful performances have impressed in the heart of their midfield.
Stoke’s previous record signing was Xherdan Shaqiri, who moved for £12 million last summer (the Guardian), but Imbula is set to smash that fee if, as expected, he joins later today.
