Cenk Tosun has played his last game of the season and will miss the European Championships after suffering a ruptured anterior cruciate ligament in his knee.
The Turkey international is currently on loan at Crystal Palace and was hoping to secure a permanent move to Selhurst Park at the end of the season, having fallen down the pecking order at Everton.
Palace have an option to purchase Tosun for £20m this summer if his loan move proves successful but with just one goal in a spell that has already been disrupted by a hamstring strain, he might not get the chance to further impress the Eagles.
As orginally reported by The Athletic, the 28-year-old suffered the injury in training and has now returned to Everton, cutting short his loan deal.
He is scheduled to undergo surgery on the problem next week and is expected be out for up to six months.

Cenk, to me, looked like he was really enjoying playing for Palace and a move to them was possibly on the cards; terrible news for him. This on top of Gerry's injury against Liverpool too! Here's hoping for a speedy recovery for both these lads and they can get their careers back on track.

As it is we can add him to the likes of Sandro, Bolasie, Schneiderlin, Walcott and Sigurdsson; all players getting over £60k per week whose contribution to the first team I expect to be minimal next season but who will be very hard to shift. The Walsh legacy continues...

Hopefully, it may not be as bad as it first appears, and it works out well for both parties. The same goes for Geri at Watford, who deep down, I wish was still with us. Get well soon boys!

Good luck for a speedy recovery and a great Euros, Cenk.

I like Cenk, was hoping it would work out for him at Palace, shame he may now have to miss the Euros, so wishing the guys speedy recovery.

Compare him to the likes of Niasse, whom I simply cannot defend. To have stolen a living the way he has, and turning down opportunities to play elsewhere really stinks, if you ask me!

He's made for life already. Save your sympathy for the fans who pay his obscene salary for next to fuck all in return... And no, it's not his fault we signed the useless fucker, and a few more besides.
