Everton outcast Cenk Tosun has rejected offers from Turkey and Europe to remain at the Premier League club he informed Turkish-Football.

Tosun received offers from Besiktas, Schalke and interest from several Bundesliga sides which he turned down.

The Turkey international is prepared to remain at Everton despite struggling for a regular first-team role last term.

Tosun is likely to have fallen further down the pecking order following the Toffees signing Moise Keane from Juventus.

The striker has been informed by Silva and Everton directors that he is free to leave but he wants to stay and fight for his place in the team.

Tosun believes he can still make an impact at Everton and prove himself to the head coach.

The 28-year-old does have another three-years remaining on his contract and has settled into life in Liverpool with his wife and newly born son.

The powerful striker scored just four goals and provided three assists in 29 appearances for Everton in all competitions last term.
