Aston Villa is delighted to announce the signing of Yannick Bolasie on a season-long loan from Everton. 

The wide-man started his career with the likes of Barnet and Plymouth Argyle before spending a season with Bristol City. 

His next destination was Crystal Palace, helping the Eagles clinch promotion to the Premier League in 2013. 

A regular fixture at Selhurst Park, the DR Congo international was also an FA Cup finalist with the South London side and his impressive performances prompted the Toffees to swoop in August 2016. 

He said: "My main aim here is to get this club promoted. A club of this stature has to be in the Premier League.

"I looked around both Villa Park and the training ground, and me and my family just said, 'wow'. It's Premier League everywhere you look.

"I'm here to make myself smile again and use all my ability to try and help the team. It's great to be here."
