Tosun joined Palace on a six-month loan move in January.

He went onto score once in five appearances for the Eagles before his injury.

As a result Tosun will also miss the European Championships for Turkey.

The London based outfit had a £20m buy option but Tosun’s stay has been cut short as a result of his injury.

Tosun still has another two-years remaining on his Everton contract.

The Crescent-Stars have had rotten luck with injuries. Juventus defender Merih Demiral, Schalke 04 star Ozan Kabak and Lille attacking midfielder Yusuf Yazici could also miss Euro 2020.
