Bolasie "Delighted" With New Deal

28 September 2015

Yannick Bolasie said he was "delighted" to have extended his stay at the club, having agreed to a new three-and-a-half year deal at Palace.

The winger's new deal was announced on Saturday evening, with him taking to the pitch on the Sunday as the Eagles secured a hard-fought 1-0 win away to Watford. After the game, he revealed his joy at the new deal, saying: "I'm delighted to have signed a new contract. 

"Now it's all about getting on the pitch and doing well for the team, so that's what I'm going to try to do. I want to replicate what i did last season, because it's been a stop-start [beginning of the season for me]. I'm not really at the pace where I think I could be at, so it's going to take me a couple of starts to really get going - especially back out on the wing again, because I've been playing up front a lot."

Alan Pardew had spoke about looking forward to developing the Palace fans' favourite over the course of his new contract, which Bolasie is equally pleased about. Asked if he though Pardew was the right man to aid his development, the 26-year-old said: "Definitely. I think everyone knows what I need to improve on - and I think it myself - just that final moment. 

"Everywhere else on the pitch I think I'm going pretty good, it's just that last little bit and then I think I can be damaging people."

Bolasie also discussed the team's performance to ensure the narrow victory away at Vicarage Road, with the full video interview available to watch for free HERE.
