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.

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.

Also Besic, the same applies to him.

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...

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.

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

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

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

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

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.
24 Posted 22/12/2020 at 22:30:23
I'd plan to keep him.
25 Posted 30/12/2020 at 16:00:01
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.
