Everton-owned winger Yannick Bolasie has suggested to Record that he is open to joining Sporting Lisbon in the summer transfer window.

Bolasie moved to Portuguese giants Sporting on a season-long loan deal from Premier League outfit Everton in the summer transfer window.

The 30-year-old winger has suggested that he is open to making the loan deal permanent next summer.

Bolasie told Record: “First of all, it is an honour to have the opportunity to play for a club like Sporting. I have to look at things step by step because we can never predict the future.

“As you all know, Sporting have the option to buy me at the end of the season, but it’s the performances that will speak for me on the pitch.

"That’s up to me: going on the pitch and doing my best to help the team achieve positive results.”

Permanent Everton exit

Bolasie has been on the books of Everton since 2016, but the winger has failed to make a huge impact at the Toffees.

The DR Congo international has had injury problems, and in recent times, he has been out on loan at Aston Villa and Anderlecht before joining Sporting this summer.

It is clear that Bolasie does not have a future at Everton under manager Marco Silva, and it would make sense for the winger to try to land a permanent contract at Sporting.

Sporting are a big club, and Bolasie will be a making a good decision if he signs a permanent contract with the Portuguese giants.
