Sean Dyche sends career warning to Dele Alli after Everton midfielder's disastrous loan transfer in Turkey | The Sun
EVERTON boss Sean Dyche has sent a warning to Dele Alli following his horror loan spell at Besiktas.
It was revealed earlier this week that Alli, 26, is set to miss the remainder of the season with a hip muscle injury.
And he has returned to parent club Everton for treatment as his future remains uncertain.
The news of his injury came just 24 hours after the former Tottenham man was pictured with a balloon in his mouth surrounded by gas canisters.
And Toffees head coach Dyche has now sent a pointed message to the ex-England international.
Speaking about Alli on Thursday, 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."
When asked about his 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."
Alli joined Everton on a free transfer from Spurs in January 2022 – although the Toffees could be made to pay as much as £40million if certain performance benchmarks are met.
The first £10m is due if he makes 20 appearances for the club.
To date, Alli has played 13 games and is yet to register a goal contribution.
His Everton contract runs until the end of the 2023/24 season.
Meanwhile, Dyche's side are in the middle of a relegation battle as they head into the final eight games of their season.
Everton sit 17th in the Premier League table, above the drop zone by virtue of goal difference.
Next up for the Merseyside outfit is a clash with Fulham at Goodison Park on Saturday.
