Everton winger Bolasie thrilled with Sporting CP move: A fantastic feeling

Everton winger Yannick Bolasie is delighted with his loan move to Sporting CP.

Bolasie has signed for Sporting to the end of the season.

"I can't explain it. It's a fantastic feeling. Some of the best players in the world have left here and it's an honor to wear this jersey. I never imagined coming to Sporting. I know the story and I know it's a great club. I'm amazed and looking forward to starting," he said.

"I've seen José Alvalade Stadium on television, but it's better live. I'll do my best to honour this jersey. I have a sense of the credibility that comes with it and I have a sense of the pressure, what fans expect.

"Words can't explain what I'm feeling. It's been a long day and I'm happy to sign for Sporting CP.

"I want to thank all the people who helped me. I'm very happy to be here and wear this shirt, I can't wait to express myself."
