Everton outcast Bolasie retains hope of joining Middlesbrough

Everton outcast Yannick Bolasie retains hope of joining Middlesbrough in January.

Middlesbrough attempted to complete a loan move to the Riverside last month before the deal broke down, but manager Neil Warnock has already expressed a desire to renew talks in January.

"It was disappointing," Bolasie told Sky Sports. "I continue to keep working and to play and train to the best of my ability. That's what I'm doing right now.

"I'm not counting myself out, and I believe that eventually my talent will come out - wherever it's with and wherever I am. I believe in what I'm doing, and I feel I'm doing myself justice.

"The way to stay positive is to always look for ways in which you can improve. What total distance can I get through in a week or in a session? Can I beat it next week? That's what motivates me still. This helps me stay ready in so many ways."
