Cenk Tosun Crystal Palace

Cenk Tosun has admitted that he would like to return to his hometown club Besiktas. The Everton striker is back at Goodison Park after a loan spell at Crystal Palace, during which he scored one goal in five appearances, with the Turkish forward netting in the Eagles’ 2-2 draw against Manchester City. But his loan spell in south London was cut short after he sustained a serious knee injury in training with the Eagles, with Tosun expected to be out for up to nine months. The injury brought his time with Palace to a premature end, after the Eagles chairman Steve Parish had hinted that the club could look to sign Tosun on a permanent basis in the summer, with an option to buy as part of the loan spell.

But Tosun has now spoken about how he could be tempted to return to Turkey at some point in the future, despite admitting that he is living his childhood dream by playing in the Premier League and that he enjoyed his brief time with the Eagles.

Cenk Tosun said: “Palace wanted to meet with me every semester. I wanted a place to play before the European Championship. They welcomed me very well. There are friendly football players. Even though it was a short time, it was a place that I enjoyed incredibly. It was my childhood dream to play here. The English Premier League means a lot to me. [But] Why should I not want Besiktas in the future? Besiktas is my home. I am proud of my people, I would like to return to my home.”

Tosun moved to Everton from Besiktas in 2018, joining the Toffees during Sam Allardyce’s time in charge at Goodison Park. He has since scored ten goals in 51 appearances for Everton, prior to joining Palace on loan in January.
