Report: Everton winger Yannick Bolasie returning from loan spell early

Yannick Bolasie will not continue his Sporting Lisbon loan deal and is likely to return to training with Everton in the foreseeable future. 

As reported by A Bola, both the Everton winger and fellow Sporting loanee Jese Rodriguez have been told they are not needed at Sporting training, with the Portuguese club getting back to work after the recent lockdown. 

Sporting returned to training this week and Bolasie was not present as yet another loan spell away from Everton looks unlikely to be made permanent. 

Everton signed Bolasie in 2016 for a reported (Guardian) £25 million after his impressive form at Premier League rivals Crystal Palace.

Celtic strike Premier Sports deal - is this the "additional value" we've been waiting for?

However, his time at Goodison Park has been marred by serious injury trouble whilst the constant change of managers at the club has not helped. 

Bolasie has spent previous loan spells at Aston Villa and Anderlecht, with the 30-year-old clearly having no first-team future on Merseyside. 

As reported by Record earlier this season, Sporting had a €4.5 million (£4m) permanent option in Bolasie’s deal, but that will no longer be activated. 

With Bolasie’s contract not expiring until the summer of 2021, Everton will yet again have to find a new club for the DR Congo star in the next transfer window.
