Everton have completed the signing of Yannick Bolasie.

Everton are expected to pay an initial £25m fee for the France-born DR Congo international, with a fee potentially rising to a club record £30m.

The 27-year-old winger had made clear his desire for a fresh start after four years at Crystal Palace, with Palace manager Alan Pardew a reluctant seller but accepted Bolasie’s “heart and soul may be elsewhere” after Everton formally lodged their interest last week.

Bolasie is Everton’s fourth summer signing, following the arrivals of Maarten Stekelenburg, Idrissa Gueye and Ashley Williams.
