Everton striker Cenk Tosun has revealed that he will not be moving back to Turkey until he achieves things at the Toffees.
The Turkish international arrived at Goodison Park last month from Besiktas and became Sam Allardyce’s first signing.
During his time with the Turkish Champions, he went on to score 64 goals from 142 appearances and will be expected to emulate that kind of form in order to help bolster the Toffees forward line which has not exactly been impressive this season.
Tosun made his debut during Everton’s 4-0 defeat against Tottenham and kept his position during their 1-1 draw with West Brom and came off the bench during the 5-1 defeat to Arsenal.
Despite having yet to find the back of the net for his new club, Tosun is confident that he can be a success in England.
“I’ve zero interest going back to Turkey at this point. Yes I’m a Besiktas fan, but I’ll never return to them without fighting and achieving things in Everton. That’s not me,” Tosun was quoted as saying by the Liverpool Echo.
“I’ll show everyone in England who is CenkTosun. I have a dream. I never quit a work before completing it.
“After I finalise my mission in here, and if the conditions are suitable I’d love to go back to Turkey but it’s too early for that. I’ve just started to know my team-mates. In Besiktas, my team-mates knew where I was going be on the pitch before they passed. They knew what I was going to do. In here they’ll learn that too in time.
“It’s not easy to adjust to a new environment, a new atmosphere, new friends even a new house. Even though I was born in Europe this situation is different.
“I moved from Turkish league which the league I’m playing for years to the toughest league in the world. It’s hard to adapt. Sam told me that too. He always talks to me. I’ve zero problems. He told me that when I fit into the league and team, I’ll be a regular starter,”
