Everton are ready to loan out Yannick Bolasie and Muhamed Besic, with Championship outfit Middlesbrough closing on a deal. Toffees boss Marco Silva brought in a number of new signings before the transfer deadline and is now ready to trim his squad by allowing some fringe to leave on loan.
Bosnia and Herzegovina international Besic spent the second half of last season on loan at the Riverside Stadium, making 15 Championship appearances, scoring one goal, and a return looks to be on the cards.
Meanwhile, Bolasie has struggled to force his way back into Everton’s first team after recovering from a cruciate knee ligament injury and he was rumoured to be in talks over a permanent move to Boro.
A deal failed to materialise but the 29-year-old winger, who is expected to be a replacement for Adama Traore following his move to Wolves, is close to joining Pulis’ side on a season-long loan.
