Bolasie’s last time in a Villa shirt was his side’s 2-2 home draw against Hull City last Saturday – he was taken off midway through the second half.
Nonetheless, during his time at the club, he scored two goals and provided five assists for his teammates [transfermarkt].
The DR Congo international now returns to Goodison Park where he faces a tough task in breaking into the first team.
Marco Silva’s side are currently sitting outside of the Premier League’s top 10 and he has a number of wide players to choose from.
It remains to be seen if Bolasie is long-term plans or he is sent out on loan against this month.
As for Villa, they have a home clash against bottom-of-the-table Ipswich on Saturday, with Paul Lambert returning to his old club.
Smith could possibly give academy product Andre Green his first start on the flanks this season following Bolasie’s exit.
