Aston Villa boss Smith happy to count on Everton winger Bolasie

Aston Villa boss Dean Smith has welcomed the return to fitness of on-loan Everton winger Yannick Bolasie.

Bolasie is yet to start a game for the Villans after joining on loan from Everton but has managed to score two goals.

“I am really pleased with how he's responded. I thought he was a real threat when he came on against Bolton," Smith said.

“He looked powerful. He looked quick. He looked strong. He looked a bag full of tricks. That's what I remember of him.

“I thought he did that when he came off the bench against QPR, too. It's pleasing we have someone of that quality who's getting better and better."
