Everton fans initially were very excited about the signing of tricky Crystal Palace winger Yannick Bolasie. His pace, power, quick feet and great passing was something that the Toffees’ had been lacking in their squad for some time.
However, things haven’t gone to how the Everton script was written for him. After being plagued with injury since joining the Merseyside-based outfit in 2016, the DR Congo international has never made more than 12 starts for the Toffees.

After a brief loan spell last season at Aston Villa, Bolasie only managed two goals from nine starts for the Midlands side, and has now been sent out for his second temporary move to Portuguese-outfit Sporting Lisbon.
The reaction from the supporters has been very mixed to say the least. One fan said that it was the best for both parties and that he wishes the 30-year-old all the best at his new club.
Another supporter hopes that his move out of Finch Farm is a “one way ticket” after his miserable spell of injuries.
Here are some of the best reactions from Everton fans:
Best for all concerned. Wishing you all the best at Sporting, Yannick.
