Theo Walcott praises teammate Cenk Tosun for the impact he has made at Everton since his arrival from Besiktas in January.

Everton winger Theo Walcott has claimed that Cenk Tosun has started to 'show his class' for the Merseyside outfit.

During the early weeks after his arrival from Besiktas, Tosun struggled to make an impact and was taken out of the first-team squad by manager Sam Allardyce.

However, Tosun has scored four goals in three games for the Toffees - including a double in Saturday's 2-1 win over Stoke City - and Walcott has admitted that he is delighted with the impact of the Turkish striker.

The England international told Evertontv: "I put in a few good ones at Stoke and Cenk showed his class. We see it every day in training. It always takes time to get used to the Premier League and a different culture and to get to know your teammates.

"He has settled in really well. He is a great finisher and a great man, as well. I am really pleased for him."

Allardyce has questioned why he received criticism for dropping Tosun earlier in the season.
