Yannick Bolasie will need to take a sizeable pay cut if he wants to stay at Middlesbrough, with the Northern Echo reporting that Neil Warnock is keen to strike a permanent deal for the Everton winger. It remains to be seen, however, if Bolasie is willing to accept a vastly reduced contract at Middlesbrough, once his £75,000-a-week Everton deal comes to an end (Spotrac).
The 31-year-old has been a big hit on loan at the Riverside, scoring or assisting seven goals in his last nine games with manager Neil Warnock admitting that he would be open to a permanent deal.
“It’ll depend on what offers Yannick gets, I suppose. I’ve spoken to him about the situation,” Warnock told Teesside Live on Friday.
“I don’t think he’ll get a Premier League club if I’m honest, so it’ll probably come down to whether he wants to play in the Championship or whether he’d rather go abroad because I think that’s where the money is.
