Everton have announced the signing of Turkish centre forward Cenk Tosun from Beşiktaş for a fee rumoured to be around the £27 million mark.

Capped 25 times by his country, he managed 41 strikes in 96 games for the Black Eagles in the Super Lig.

German-born Tosun has put pen to paper on a four and a half year deal at Goodison Park.

Here’s what Tosun had to say about the move: “I’m really happy to be here and happy that everything is done. I’m really excited to play for Everton as soon as possible. Everton is a great club with a big history and a big culture and I’m looking forward to showing the fans the kind of player I am.

“I bring my skills here and everybody is going to see what kind of player I am. I believe I can be a good player in the Premier League.

“The Premier League is a strong league, I know that, so my own physical strength will help me. Also I can use both feet the same and I believe I am a good striker in the box.

“I’m really looking forward to training with my teammates and getting to know them and, of course, I want to play as soon as possible. The Tottenham game will be the first game I am available for and I’m very excited about it already.”
