Bolasie expects to 'hit the ground running' at Everton

Everton signing Yannick Bolasie is eager to 'hit the ground running' at his new club.

The 27-year-old winger signed for the Toffees from Crystal Palace for a transfer fee that could rise to £30million.

Bolasie admits he is taking a little time to settle at Goodison Park but will soon be raring to go for his new club.

He said: "I am trying to settle in really quickly, and it's a different system to Palace, but once I do I think I will hit the ground running.

"I have not really played much in pre-season but I am getting sharper. And I don't think I will change how I play,

"I will just get the ball in better areas and cause much more damage than I would in the past.

"The price tag hasn't really hit me though. I am just here to play football and don't put pressure on myself like that. I have come here to enjoy the game."
