Crystal Palace winger Yannick Bolasie has committed his future to the Eagles by signing a new contract at Selhurst Park. The wideman caught the eye of Liverpool with impressive performances in the Premier League - notably Crystal Palace's 3-3 draw with Reds in May.

The winger has made 79 first-team appearances playing a key part of the club’s promotion to the Premier League in 2012/13, playing 48 games and scoring three times. 


Bolasie spoke to the club's official website: "I am delighted I am here today with it all signed and I’m ready to kick on and play in the best league in the world.”

“Everyone has seen over the last two years that I have improved and improved and that’s what I want to do again this year.”

Crystal Palace faced Newcastle on Saturday and Neil Warnock a 3-3 draw his first game in charge of the squad since his re-appointment. The loan signing of Wilfied Zaha was the hero of a day as he bagged a late equaliser at St. James' Park.
