On deadline day of the winter market, Everton allowed Yannick Bolasie to join Anderlecht on until the end of the season after his loan at Aston Villa was terminated in January.
The DR Congo international’s contract at Goodison Park will run down in 2021 and during an interview with Het Nieuwsblad last month, he admitted he has “no idea” about his future beyond this season.
Het Nieuwsblad now brings an update about the 29-year-old’s short term future in Wednesday’s edition of the Belgian newspaper.
It’s claimed the Jupiler Pro League could convince the former Crystal Palace man to continue at Anderlecht, provided they qualify for next season’s Champions League.
For this to happen, they will have to finish in the top two of the play-offs table, with Belgium league splitting towards the end of the season.
The forward is earning a weekly salary of €85,000 and Bolasie’s wages seem way too high for Anderlecht, which is why they are hoping to re-sign him on loan for the 2019/20 season.
Anderlecht’s chances of signing Bolasie on a temporary deal in the summer will heavily depend on whether or not they will qualify for the Europe’s elite club competition for the next campaign.
Oh, and what Everton think of course.
