FA Cup Third Round - Everton v Rotherham United

(Reuters) - Everton forward Cenk Tosun has rejoined his former club Besiktas on loan until the end of the season, the Turkish side said.

Tosun moved to Everton in January 2018 on a 4-1/2 year deal for a fee of around 27 million pounds ($37.07 million) but has failed to cement his place in the team, scoring 11 goals in 58 matches in all competitions.

He had a short loan spell at Crystal Palace last year before returning to Everton in March after suffering an anterior cruciate ligament injury.

The 29-year-old has made five league appearances for Everton this season, all as a substitute.

Tosun scored 41 goals in 96 Turkish Super Lig games for Besiktas.
