Everton announced the addition of Bolasie on Monday after the 27-year-old joined Palace back in 2012. In his time with Palace, Bolasie netted 13 first-team goals across all competitions and added 30 assists, and played a role for the club in its promotion to the Premier League ahead of the 2013/14 season.

“It’s not about the money for me, Bolasie said. “It’s about looking at the ambition of the Club and where they are trying to get to. I just like to play football.

“I just like to play football and it’s going to be really interesting to learn from someone like Ronald Koeman, who was obviously a top centre-back as a player and he played with some of the best players in the world.
