Everton loanee Mo Besic has endeared himself to Middlesbrough fans already after joining Boro in January and he posted a heartfelt Tweet to his new fans - but Everton supporters responded by wanting him back.

The 25-year-old has starred in Tony Pulis' side thus far, making five appearances and helping the Teesside club win three of those in England's second tier - losing only to second-placed Cardiff City.

The Bosnian is expected to remain an integral member of Pulis' side as they continue in their fight for a Championship play-off place, with Boro currently sitting in sixth place.

Former Ferencvaros midfielder Besic posted a picture of him celebrating with Tuesday night's goalscorer Patrick Bamford, with the caption of a heart. 

His long-term future remains at Everton as he has a contract at Goodison Park until the summer of 2021, reportedly worth £30,000 a week. But Boro could look to tie up a permanent deal, if he continues to impress at the Riverside.

Everton fans are desperate for their tough-tackling central midfielder to stay, though, with one fan pleading with the versatile star to "come back" to Merseyside.
