Everton striker Cenk Tosun, on loan at Crystal Palace for the rest of the season, looks likely to be sidelined for six months due to a knee problem.
Tosun, 28, sustained the injury in training earlier this week, and according to Turkish media outlet TRT, as cited by Sport Witness, scans have since detected ruptures which could keep him out of action for as long as half a year.
Cenk Tosun has provided an update on the knee injury he suffered while on loan away from Goodison Park, in conversation with Turkish outlet Haberglobal.
In January, Tosun had linked up with fellow Premier League side Crystal Palace on loan until the end of the season after falling out of favour at Everton.
The Toffees man made five appearances for the Eagles, scoring on his full debut to help secure a 2-2 draw against Manchester City. However, Tosun returned to Goodison Park after suffering an anterior cruciate ligament injury in training at Palace and is undergoing rehabilitation at Finch Farm.
“I had my operation yesterday which is a success so now I am going through rehabilitation,” Tosun said. “But I am going to be out for a long time. I believe there is a reason for everything. I am going to try and return even stronger.”
Tosun joined Everton from Besiktas in 2018 for a reported £27million fee and has clocked up 51 appearances for the Toffees, scoring 10 goals and claiming six assists.
