According to the Daily Star, Aston Villa boss Steve Bruce is keen on a loan move for Everton outcast Yannick Bolasie, and the news started a wave of excitement among Villa fans on Twitter.
With Theo Walcott, Ademola Lookman and new Brazilian signings Bernard and Richarlison all ahead of Bolasie at Goodison Park, the 29-year-old should be looking for a loan move to the Championship in order to get regular first team football.
The DR Congo international only returned from a ruptured cruciate ligament in December last season, after a year out and 53 matches missed.
Everton paid Crystal Palace £25m in the summer of 2016 for Bolasie’s signature but it now looks like he will be allowed to go out on loan. If Villa were able to secure him for the season he would add huge pace and attacking flair to Bruce’s side and could be crucial in aiding another push for promotion.
Check out some of the best tweets after Bolasie was linked with Villa below.
A fully fit Yannick Bolasie would be an incredible signing. Imagine the pace we’d have with Green as well #AVFC

The XI that started on Saturday has a noticeable lack of pace. Andre Green is the only player with a decent burst. Therefore, it makes more sense to sign the likes of Bolasie/Success than Snodgrass/Ødegaard – it will speed up those slow counter attacks. We have no out ball. #AVFC

If Villa can loan these 3 players Yannick Bolasie, Martin Odegaard, Tammy Abraham plus Robert Huth on free and sort out left back in January, we could boss this league. Make it happen #avfc.

This would certainly make Villa stronger. I hope we are at least looking at Bolasie. Chelsea's England striker Tammy Abraham, 20, Everton's DR Congo winger Yannick Bolasie, 29, and West Ham's Scotland midfielder Robert Snodgrass, 30, are loan targets for Aston Villa.(Star)
