Palace winger Yannick Bolasie sparks a Twitter frenzy among fans by ‘liking’ a tweet linking him with a move to Tottenham Hotspur.
Bolasie was one of the stars of the excellent second half of the season. Pardew has developed a system to accommodate the maverick talents of Bolasie, Jason Puncheon and Wilfried Zaha - particularly on the road. They scored more away goals Liverpool or Man United and their away record alone would’ve placed them 5th in the table. But Pardew has made no secret of his willingness to sell at the right price, placing a £40 million price tag on Bolasie in April, saying: ‘I’ll take it and we’ll build the team around that money. Every player has his price.’ Whether Bolasie’s price is actually £40 million is questionable and whether Tottenham are willing to pay another question entirely. But it is clear Palace are willing to sell – and Bolasie is evidently willing to go. Jun 15 - 6:27 AM

Yannick Bolasie of Crystal Palace had one of the better quarter hours of production you will see from any individual player, as he bagged three goals and added an assist in that time to turn a 0-0 affair into 1-4 slaughter of Sunderland.

The Eagles have been one of the more consistent and fun to watch attacking units in the top flight these days and though their barrage took up only a fraction of the match, it was a delight to witness. Glenn Murray scored his sixth goal in his last six appearances to open the scoring with a header thanks to a cross from Bolasie. From there, it was all Yannick. He scored on an assist from Murray, who was returning the favor for his goal. Then he received a long ball between two defenders and chipped it cooly over the keeper's head for the second, then wrapped it up by sheer determination as he stumbled while trying to collect the ball in the area, somehow maintained his composure and stuck another one in. The Eagles return home next to face a Baggies side who have suddenly forgotten how to defend. A Palace attacker would be a nice touch for most fantasy teams in Week 34.

Crystal Palace's Yannick Bolaise is tipped to shine against Aston Villa in Week 14.

While Mile Jedinak is the obvious premium midfield choice if you have the money, not many fantasy managers will be able to stretch their budget that far and so the next best option for us is Yannick Bolasie. The Eagles winger has been superb in recent weeks - including a match-winning display in the 3-1 win over Liverpool - and will offer a huge threat to Aston Villa with his pace, trickery, crossing and shots from distance.

Crystal Palace shook off an early Liverpool goal and gradually took over the contest, with a pair of goals in the final 15 minutes making the difference as the Eagles win 3-1.

Down a goal after 90 seconds, Palace could have been in for a long day but Dwight Gayle leveled things after 17 minutes and the crowd at Selhurst Park could smell blood. Gayle was gifted a kind rebound from a Bolasie strike that clanked straight off the post and squeaked it past Simon Mignolet. The Eagles went into an extra gear in the second half and again Bolasie was at the center of seemingly every chance. Impossible to contain, he was drawing extra defenders toward him whenever he was on the ball and that opened up space for others. He would find Joe Ledley wide open in the 78th minute and Ledley nutmegged Mignolet to give the Eagles the lead. They would put the game to bed when Mile Jedinak scored his fourth of the season with a picture perfect deep free kick that no keeper could reach. Now out of the relegation zone, Palace will look to build off the win when they travel to Swansea next.

Yannick Bolasie put in a busy display despite a poor Crystal Palace performance in Week 7.

The Eagles were well beaten by Hull, but at least Bolasie was able to provide some sparkle on the flank as he returned 13 points in the Yahoo fantasy game. His contributions were typical of a winger - successful crosses and corners won - with a shot on target and a couple of blocks thrown in, suggesting he was involved in most of the Palace positive. Bolasie has been averaging a respectable eight points per game so far this season and is less than 0.5% owned, so he could prove a decent differential pick when Neil Warnock's men face slightly easier fixtures.

Yannick Bolasie scored Palace's third goal in a Man of the Match performance that saw the Eagles pick up an unexpected three points at Goodison Park.

After going down 1-0 to an early Romelu Lukaku strike Crystal Palace scored three unanswered goals to go up 3-1. They gave up a Leighton Baines penalty late but held on for a critical three points in a season that started out poorly.

Crystal Palace are set to open talks with Yannick Bolasie, who has just 12 months left on his current contract at Selhurst Park.

Bolasie was a key part of Crystal Palace's promotion push last season, but struggled for games under Ian Holloway at the start of the club's Premier League campaign. That all changed under Tony Pulis, with the in-form winger providing pace, trickery and (mostly) a decent end product, keeping Tom Ince out of the team from February onwards. Locking Bolasie in to a long term deal as quickly as possible would seem a sensible move by the Selhurt Park hierarchy, with other clubs attracted by his form and current contract situation.

Crystal Palace have today finalised the signing of Adlene Guedioura from Nottingham Forest on a three-year deal for an undisclosed fee.

How can Palace complete this transfer the day after the window closed? Well, part of the deal was agreed before the deadline, allowing the clubs to continue with proceedings to get the deal done this morning. If more clubs knew this was an option then perhaps we would have seen even more money spent? Alas, Guedioura is an attacking midfielder capable of unlocking opposition defences with through passes and is known for his deadly accuracy when shooting from distance, so should chip in with a few goals. His arrival is likely to knock Yannick Bolasie and Jonathan Wiliiams further down the pecking order.

Crystal Palace confirm the signing of free agent Elliot Grandin on a one-year deal, subject to Premier League and FA approval.

Grandin is a player that manager Ian Holloway knows well and he had a fine season for Blackpool in the Premier League 3 years ago. The winger will provide experience and competition for the likes of Yannick Bolasie and new signing Jerome Thomas, but Palace still have a lot of work to do in the market if their squad is to have any chance of survival.
