Warnock revives interest in Bolasie

| Thursday, 17 December 2020 25comments  |  Jump to last
Yannick Bolasie is once again being linked with a loan move to Middlesbrough as Neil Warnock has reportedly kept his interest in the winger alive.

Bolasie appeared set to join Boro on loan in the summer, only for the deal to fall through at the last minute, with Warnock alluding to some unresolved details with his Everton contract as being the reason why the move never went through.

Bolasie is in the final 6 months of his contract at Everton and has been looking for a new opportunity for a while now.

With only a few months left on his contract, I would think his agent is working hard to find him a club.

He can either sit on his backside earning a fortune for 6 months or he can take a sizeable reduction in pay and get next to no credit for playing for Boro.

At the end of the day, most would take the money.

He'll earn the same wherever, just Boro will compensate us for a proportion of his salary.

So assuming he is on £90k p/w, and Boro are prepare to offer him/us £30k p/w, then he'll be the same, but we'll make a net saving.

Not including him in our squad massively reduced our negotiating power, and I'd be pretty confident Boro's offer is half what it was at the start of the season.

It's sad to see a fully fit footballer not playing and prepared to sit it out rather than challenge themselves. I hope he gets his subsidised move away.

Also Besic, the same applies to him.

If he wants a new contract somewhere, he's gonna have to show he's still got it, so I expect him to leave.

If it wasn't for Covid, I'd drive them both up to Teesside myself. They won't have a problem with quarantining as they've been isolated from everyone all season.

It's a shame because Bolasie looked a real prospect at Palace and I was pleased when we signed him. However, he never looked right here even before the injury.

Mo Besic is a bit of an enigma. Looked to have some talent, but successive managers have decided he hasn't got it. Whatever 'it' is...

Andrew Brookfield @ 3

I might be mistaken, but I believe I read on this site that he was expected to take a pay cut to go to Boro.

Crikey... Besic!?!

It's sad when you completely forget a player is still on the books at the club.

Tom, I'd guess he'll go on a Mirallas/Schneiderlin "free". If Boro really want him, they'll pay him the balance of his contract in lieu of a transfer fee.

At this stage, Bolasie will be thinking about the next (and final) 3-year deal. He may forego a few quid from us in order to secure an income from Middlesbrough. Probably some deal to be struck. He'll not be short of a few quid when it is struck.

It'll be good to strike his name off the list too. Few more to follow in summer.

I still find it hard to believe we paid £27M for this guy, a friend of mine who is a mad Palace fan was amazed at the price they got for him.

He'll be going to Boro on loan until the end of the season when his contract runs out with us. He's then free to sign for anyone.

Everton will receive no fee as such – just a portion of his wages off the books.

The Ronald Koeman regime was the biggest scourge on this club in recent times - the amount of money that Koeman got Moshiri to splurge on for so little return on investment is nothing short of criminal - Schneiderlin, Sigurdsson, Bolasie, Vlasic, Sandro must have cost us upwards of 100 million. His okay-ish signings were Pickford, Keane, Rooney, Lookman. The one really potential 'club fortune changing' signing - Dominic Calvert-Lewin - was not even Koeman's scouting - it was all down to Unsworth!

Offer Warnock a 5for1 deal ie Bolasie, Besic, Sandro, Garbutt and Banigmane(?) for £10m.

I’d throw in Iwobi in as well, but we could probably get Big Sam to cough up £5m for him.

Boro will only be able to pay him about £15,000 tops in this current climate, which will be a 15k weekly saving for us until June, he then needs to negotiate the best he can get for himself, if he doesn’t pull up trees he won’t even get a 15k a week deal after June.

Colin#15 Iwobi £5m! He’s had 3 decent games so surely £6m, he’s our new saviour don’t you know.

Sorry guys Iwobi is proving himself now, in a preferred position. His runs his legs off which is more than some others do.

Colin @ #15. Thankfully Sandro & Garbutt aren’t our players anymore. Both been released. I agree with the other 3 though!

Yeah, I'm really warming to Iwobi. He's been playing well recently.

Hope fat Sam fancies Tosun. I feel sorry for West Brom fans as they have got some hideous football to face.

I've wondered, since it was announced, why Bolasie and Besic were not included in the named 25-man squad unless those positions were left vacant for a couple of signings that either didn't eventuate or can be used for two in the next window? Not naming them means that they can't be used; remember the Garbutt situation when we ran out of left-backs (for Europa League games)?

However, given the points system, however it works, being introduced as a post-Brexit eligibility system (from 1 January?) for European (and other non-British and/or non-contracted players?), will we be bringing top line players from Europe or concentrating on homegrown players from other clubs, a policy which of course should include both types.

Iwobi at least puts in a shift. Watching him early on reminded me a lot of Oxlade-Chamberlain at Liverpool, eg, trying to do too much, panicking, however of late he seems to have settled down. His finesse is lacking but I appreciate his work rate.

I know I'm in a minority here but I always liked old Pembridge because, if nothing else, he put in a shift. Yes £30 million was too much but I'm more sympathetic to a trier than a passenger, like Bernard, Gomes etc.

At least Iwobi attacks and takes on an opposition player or three. Hardly seen that by another Everton player, other than Richarlison, in the recent past.

I'd plan to keep him.

Bolasie is good enough for our squad and could have made a positive change against Man Utd.

I'd say he's a better impact sub over Tosun. He's inconsistent but he's also a game-changer simply because of his pace, power and goal threat.

Besic has sadly lost what he had. A career ruined because of injury.
