Besiktas confirm loan of Tore to West Ham

ToreBesiktas president Fikret Orman has officially confirmed the loan transfer of Gokhan Tore to West Ham.

Orman told Turkish media at a press conference: “We have loaned Gokhan Tore to West Ham, they made an offer and it appealed to us. We have a lot of competition for a place on the right wing with Andreas Beck, Gökhan Gönül, Kerim Frei, Ricardo Quaresma, Aras Özbiliz and Olcay Şahan,” 

Tore arrived in London yesterday and passed two West Ham medicals. West Ham expected to officially announce the move at some stage later today.

West Ham will have a buy-out clause option for Tore but are expected to pay a £5 million loan fee for the transfer. Besiktas initially wanted to sell Tore on a permanent transfer but reached a compromise with the Hammers who agreed to pay a loan fee.
