Everton striker Cenk Tosun has been told he would be welcome back at Besiktas if he wanted to leave Everton, according to his former vice president.

Ahmet Nur Cebi offered the Turkish international an alternative option with the Toffees January signing yet to be given any real opportunities in the Everton first team.

Tosun only signed for the Goodison Park outfit at the start of the winter transfer window for £27million but has struggled to stamp his authority on the team and make a place his own.

The 26-year-old made his debut for the Toffees in their 4-0 defeat to Tottenham and has also made appearances against West Brom and Arsenal.

But Sam Allardyce has since admitted they are likely to see the best of the player at a later date as he has struggled to cope with the physicality of the English top-flight so far.

As quoted in the Liverpool Echo, the Besiktas vice-president said: “I think he’s happy now, but at Besiktas our doors are always open to him.

“I would love him to come back in the future. And I think at one stage of his career, he will want a return to Besiktas because we have a brilliant atmosphere here, and players want to play for this shirt again.”

At the Turkish outfit, Tosun notched up 14 goals from 26 outings, including strikes in the Champions League.

Everton now have a job on to ensure they finish as high as they possibly can in the Premier League this term.

Despite a poor campaign, there remains the possibility of making it into Europe and Big Sam will want to do all he can to ensure their season is not rendered useless.
