Dele Alli has been offered a shock second chance to revive his football career
| Last updated
Everton’s Dele Alli could be in line for a shock second chance at Turkish Super Lig side Besiktas.
In a bid to reignite his career, he was loaned to Turkish side Besiktas at the start of the 22/23 season.
However, Alli had a torrid time over in Turkey. In 17 matches, the 27-year-old only managed to find the back of the net on three occasions.
Earlier in the month, Alli returned to Everton in order to undergo surgery on a hip injury that has ruled him out for the rest of the current season.
As a result of his injury, his torrid Besiktas loan spell has also been cut short.
However, according to The Mail, Besiktas’ president Ahmet Nur Cebi is interested in bringing Alli back to the club if the midfielder ‘leaves Everton for free’ in the summer.
Alli’s current deal with the Toffees does not expire until the end of the 23/24 season but it is unsure at this stage whether Everton want to keep him around or not.
Recently, Toffees boss Sean Dyche spoke about the former Spurs man. He said: “You can only guide people with what you think is good for them.
“Eventually players have choices, so we recommend they make good choices.
“But behind that, he's factually injured. He's come back with a proper injury that's going to take some time to get sorted out, so he'll use that period wisely, I hope.”
On Alli’s future, Dyche added: “He is not here. He has an injury which will keep him out for some time. Some of the stuff reported - they know what they should and shouldn't be doing.
“As a manager, you cannot control everything in their lives. Should we be following them all day? You can only guide them.
“He has an injury which will take a while to sort out - it will be a number of weeks.”
Everton are currently in a relegation battle as they continue to fight for their Premier League status.
