Middlesbrough waiting for confirmation on deal for Everton winger
Middlesbrough FC are waiting for confirmation in a late race to sign Everton winger Yannick Bolasie.
Boro had inquired about the services of Yannick Bolasie on Thursday and have been in talks with Everton regarding a loan deal.
Both clubs had been far apart in their valuation of the player, however, a deal had been struck close to the transfer deadline.
Blackburn Rovers, Derby County and Millwall had also expressed interest in the 31-year-old, but Bolasie was set on a switch to the Riverside.
Bolasie has gained a reputation as a skilful winger and would add a different dimension to Boro's attack.
Neil Warnock has regularly stated his desire to improve the attack and the signing of Bolasie adds depth to the options in the final third.
He would add tactical flexibility and enable the team play a front three, or play in a 4-4-2.
