Everton winger Yannick Bolasie has joined Championship side Aston Villa on a season-long loan deal.

The 29-year-old joined the Toffees from Crystal Palace in 2016 for a fee of £25m on a five-year contract.

DR Congo international Bolasie had been linked with a move to Villa's promotion rivals Middlesbrough.

 

"My main aim here is to get this club promoted. A club of this stature has to be in the Premier League," Bolasie told the Aston Villa website.
