Earlier this evening Aston Villa confirmed that on loan winger Yannick Bolasie had now returned to parent club Everton.

The 29-year-old came in late on in the August transfer window and whilst plenty of fans were happy with his arrival given his form at Crystal Palace, the fact he hadn’t really set Goodison Park alight did worry plenty of others – and there were concerns over his fitness.

Nine starting appearances later and 12 substitute showings did return two goals and he also chipped in with four assists, but with Andre Green appearing to show more in the last match than Bolasie has managed in his more recent games, few fans are sad to see him move on.

Glimpses of what he can do yes, but with the nonsensical reports we were covering all of his wage, even at 50% which sounds more logical, it’s still a fair whack in terms of an outlay and few fans disagree with head coach Dean Smith’s words about loans – now we have to see more of a pivot to our own youth so we really start developing them properly.
