Yannick Bolasie is set to sign a new long-term contract with Crystal Palace, Goal understands.

The 25-year-old played a pivotal role in Palace's survival under Tony Pulis last term, but his future had been in doubt as negotiations over a new deal dragged on.

A number of clubs from across Europe and the Middle East have shown an interest in the winger, who had just 12 months left on his current contract.

However, just 24 hours after naming Neil Warnock as their new manager, Palace are set to tie down one of their star names to a new contract.

The DR Congo international is set to sign a three-year deal with the Eagles, which is expected to be in place ahead of Warnock's first game in charge of the club this weekend against Newcastle United.

Bolasie has started both of Palace's Premier League games so far this season, and featured 30 times in all competitions last term.
