Report explains how Cenk Tosun feels about January Everton exit

Farhad Moshiri looks on during the Premier League match between Everton and West Ham United at Goodison Park on November 29, 2017 in Liverpool, England.

Tosun has scored just six times in 22 Premier League games and a January exit has been mooted with a return to Besiktas identified as a possibility in Mynet.

But, less than a year after arriving, it seems that Tosun has no interest yet in giving up on his Everton career.
