Everton winger Yannick Bolasie intends to hold talks with loan side RSC Anderlecht this summer, to see if new boss Vincent Kompany will be open to extending his time at the RSCA Constant Vanden Stock Stadium, as per quotes by HLN.

The DR Congo international did not settle into his new surroundings instantly in January having called time on his stint with Aston Villa early, but eventually started to score and create goals to become a key figure for caretaker boss Karim Belhocine.

The Belgian side parting ways with the 40-year-old in favour of offering Manchester City defender Kompany a player-manager position has put Bolasie’s time in Brussels in doubt, though, as has the 29-year-old’s £75,000-a-week wage.

Yet, despite interest from Newcastle United and Southampton, Bolasie is keen to continue his time with the Purple & White – although whether that would be on loan again or as a permanent arrangement remains to be seen.

“I have [had] a good time at Anderlecht. I like being here. The club looked after me very well and my children are going to school here too,” Bolasie is quoted as saying. “I am certainly not averse to an extended stay, although I realise that the financial [side of things] might be a stumbling block.”

When asked if Kompany could provide a breakthrough, he added: “I know Vince from the Premier League. He is a person with a huge image. I will definitely talk to him about my future and how he sees it.”

Bolasie’s £75,000-a-week contract at Goodison Park still has another two years to run before the 2016 signing from Crystal Palace would become a free agent.

The £12.6million-rated 35-cap international has also been involved in 16 goals (eight scored, eight assisted) this season for both Villa and Anderlecht.
