By Dominic Toner
Yannick Bolasie has completed a move to Everton – a deal which has gone down well with Everton supporters on Twitter.
Bolasie has signed a five-year deal with Everton after completing a medical and agreeing terms with the Merseyside giants.
Sky Sports claimed on their transfer centre blog (10.58am) that the Merseysiders will pay £28million to sign to winger from Palace.
It is said that Bolasie will move for an initial £22.5million, with another £2.5million of add-ons and the potential for a further £3million further down the line.

The 27-year-old winger was on the substitute’s bench for Palace’s 1-0 defeat against West Brom on Saturday but came on in the 66th minute to a standing ovation from the Sellhurst Park support.
The 27-year-old, who signed a three-year deal at Selhurst Park after moving from Bristol City for £250,000 in 2012, played in 31 encounters for the Eagles last season in all competitions, scoring six goals and providing six assists.
In other Everton transfer news, they have submitted a £22million bid for a former Premier League striker.
