LONDON (Reuters) - Everton winger Yannick Bolasie will miss the rest of the season with a knee injury and could be out for a year, manager Ronald Koeman said on Wednesday.

The 27-year-old, who joined from Crystal Palace in August, injured his anterior cruciate ligament during Everton’s 1-1 draw with Manchester United on Dec. 4.

“It will be around 11-12 months before he is back. That is a big disappointment but he will come back,” Koeman was quoted by the BBC.

The Democratic Republic of Congo international has made 14 league appearances for Everton this season, scoring once.
