Crystal Palace's Yannick Bolasie celebrates scoring their second goal with Freddie Ladapo
Former players Phil Neville and Don Hutchison have taken to social networking site Twitter in order to share their views on the latest reports suggesting Everton have a agreed a deal to sign Yannick Bolasie.
According to Sky Sports, Everton have agreed a deal for the crystal Palace winger for a fee which could rise to £30 million.
The 27-year-old has now been given permission to discuss personal terms with the Toffees and undergo a medical, and should all go through he could become the club’s most expensive aquisition.

Bolasie is widely regarded as one of the better wingers in the Premier League, with his pace, trickery and directness often causing defenders all sorts of problems in one vs one situations.
Amid the latest reports, Neville and Hutchison have both taken to Twitter in order to have their say on the deal and it seems the former Everton stars are very much in favour of it happening.

Bolasie joined Palace from Brsitol City back in the summer of 2012, and despite having plenty of potential, few at Selhurst Park envisaged the player making such an impact at the club.
