Middlesbrough are in talks with Everton winger Yannick Bolasie over a season-long loan deal.

Both are available on loan until August 31, after Boro missed out on signing the pair permanently on transfer deadline day.

Bolasie travelled on Monday to Rockliffe Park, Middlesbrough's training ground near Darlington, for talks with Tony Pulis, Boro's manager, and for a medical.

Bolasie signed for Everton from Crystal Palace for £25million in 2016 but his career on Merseyside has been blighted by injuries.

Pulis is hopeful of persuading the 29-year-old former Crystal Palace player to attempt to resurrect his career at the Riverside Stadium, with the Teessiders now sitting at the top of the table after four games.

The DR Congo global worked with Pulis at Crystal Palace and will be seen as a potential replacement for Adama Traore.

Tony Pulis' side have agreed a deal in principle for Besic's signature and the Bosnian held talks with the Championship club on Sunday night.

It remains to be seen whether the deal will have an option for Middlesbrough to sign Besic on a permanent basis when the transfer window for permanent deals swings back open in January.

He is also expected to join on a season-long loan deal.

The Teessiders have made a blistering start to the new Championship campaign, taking 10 points from a possible 12 following their 2-0 victory over Bristol City on Saturday.
