Everton winger Bolasie assures Aston Villa fans: I'm ready to graft

Everton winger Yannick Bolasie has told Aston Villa fans he's ready to "graft".

The 29-year-old winger has joined on a season-long loan from Everton, just over two years after being signed by the Toffees for £25million from Crystal Palace.

“This is an ideal situation for me. I am ready to take it," he said. “I'm a hard worker. I am ready to graft. I know coming down into the Championship is going to be tough.

“You are playing against players who are always improving, some really good teams.

“I also know the status you have as a player coming down from the Premier League. Everyone is going to up their game against me. I look forward to that challenge."
