Quinn was impressed with the performance of Gueye for Everton against Tottenham on Saturday afternoon.
“In Gueye, Everton had a player who shone in midfield and dictated from the engine room,” Quinn told Sky Sports.
"He threw himself around the place, made tackles, made interceptions, broke up Spurs' passing game time and time again.
"He was running all over the place, showing lots of energy, Like a terrier. At times, when he was under pressure on the ball, he wasn't bad either - he distributed well.”
