Cenk Tosun has been linked with a return to Beskitas less than a year after joining the Toffees.

The Turkish strikers has struggled to settle at Everton and has not shown the goalscoring form that got him signed last January.

SporunDibi claim Besiktas want a loan deal for the striker, who is struggling for game time at Everton.

The striker was subbed off after 70 minutes against Newcastle on Wednesday evening, and failed to make much of a contribution to proceedings.

The report from Turkey also suggests that Besiktas are close in sealing a deal for Tosun.

The striker had said he would stay and fight for his place in the side. However, after yet more poof performances, Marco Silva may have finally lost patience with the striker.

Tosun joined Everton last January, and has netted seven times in the league. The striker has not made a huge impact however, especially due to the £27 million Everton paid for the Turk.
