Former Middlesbrough, Everton and Crystal Palace winger Yannick Bolasie drops transfer hint

Former Middlesbrough winger Yannick Bolasie has dropped a transfer hint about his future plans.

The 32-year-old, who scored three goals in 15 appearances during a loan spell at Boro, became a free agent earlier this summer after his contract at Everton expired.

Boro boss Neil Warncok, who also worked with Bolasie at Crystal Palace, was keen to bring the player back to the Riverside, yet a deal couldn’t be reached.

Bolasie now appears to be moving abroad after posting a video on Instagram of him training from the Turkish capital Istanbul.

The winger had offers in Turkey before he signed for Boro last January, and it seems that interest has been revived.

Boro have been busy in the transfer market over recent weeks after completing the signings of winger Sammy Ameobi, striker Uche Ikpeazu and defender Lee Peltier on permanent deals.

The Teessiders have also brought in goalkeeper Joe Lumley, who looks set to be the club’s new No 1.
