Crystal Palace star player Yannick Bolasie has penned a new long term deal with the club which will keep him for another period of three and a half year.
The attacker joined Palace from Championship side Bristol City in 2012 and since his move he has been exceptional for the Eagles. He helped his side to finish 10th last season in thePremier League.
The 26-year-old who signed a deal earlier today was also linked with a move to Tottenham Hotspur and Liverpool in the summer window but boss Alan Pardew insisted that no club made a formal approach for the Congo international.
Bolasie has netted seven goals in 117 appearances for Crystal Palace since his move from Bristol City.
Bolasie revealed his happiness after signing his three and a half year deal that he is very happy to sign a new contract. Despite of having chances of moving to a better club in the near future, he remains calm and committed to the Eagles.
While Pardew told club's official website that it’s a good new for the club.
“This is a good news story for the club, to secure this guy.”
Further the French manager added that there was no bid for him in the summer.
“There was no bid for Yannick. But we know, if he was available for £5m, we'd have a queue from here to wherever. He's a lot more money than that, and now we've got three and a half years he's a lot more money.”
Bolasie would easily leave them if they face relegation this season, so far they have been in fine form.
