Everton forward Cenk Tosun has told the Turkish media he’s happy at club and isn’t thinking about a move back to the Super Lig.
The Everton player has been linked with a return to Turkey in recent weeks, with Besiktas and Fenerbahce reportedly showing an interest.
Speaking to Fanatik, Tosun was asked about his future plans in football: “I’m not coming back to Turkey. I’m so happy at Everton. I want to be here for a long time. For my homeland, I want to make my flag proud here.
“Here, we represent Turkey. Not just me; Caglar Söyüncü, Cengiz Under, Hakan Calhanoglu, Zeki Celik, Merih Demiral, Okay Yokuslu are also the same … We represent not only our name but also the whole country.”
Tosun signed for Everton during the 2018 winter transfer window from Besiktas, which is still the transfer record for a player being signed from the Turkish Super Lig.
However, the attacker has struggled to get games under Marco Silva during the second half of the season. This has led to claims in the Turkish press that Besiktas will make another attempt to re-sign the Everton man in the summer, after their reported interest in the last transfer window.
Despite these claims, it seems the Turkey international is content at Goodison Park and ready to fight for a place in Silva’s starting eleven.
The forward is contracted to the Toffees until June 2022.
