Exclusive: Tore deal twist as talks go on


gokhan-tore-551520Reports that West Ham have agreed to sign Gokhan Tore at a fee of around £10.5 million are wide of the mark.

Regular recent speculation that a deal has been agreed to bring the Beskitas wideman to the Olympic Stadium is correct – but ClaretandHugh can exclusively reveal that this remains only as a loan deal.

Turkish publication FutbolArena has reported that both clubs have now agreed the fee for the 24-year-old in a move which would reunite him with his former boss Slaven Bilic.

RR Very HighHowever, given how many rumours have come out of Turkey – with no deals being completed since Slav’s arrival – ClaretandHugh’s Rumour Ratng registered at “Moderate.” when we first drew attention to the Turkish media report.

And today we have learned from our top source inside West Ham that any deal at this stage will be a season’s loan arrangement but he added: “At this moment we still can’t agree terms.”

He added: “We are hoping we can it done but at this stage we are still talking on the loan.”

  1. We are a joke, a loan for this calibre of a player, just move on and forget building fans hopes up. Bilic must be seething with board. Top player, manager wants him and board don’t. They think Ritchie is better value – are you having a laugh !!

  2. Starting to think I am in this sick dream every day,
    Unless we get something for nothing these days we keep playing games,
    Wonder how many shirts with Tore on the back get printed before you have to get it crossed out and Ritchie is printed under it,At least if we buy Scotish we still get a Euro player ?

  3. Us Hammers fans must all have short memories . The Porn twins pull the same stunts every transfer window . Will he won’t he that is the question . Loan deals for quality players is an insult . ” we will invest heavily in the transfer window ” can be translated as … you can smell the bull**** at the new stadium better than at the Boleyn . ….. pair of to—-s

  4. Make you right bubbles, same every year!
    Although I must say I didn’t think they’d try to pull the same old stunt again this year, as they’ve already managed to shift all the season tickets!

  5. So were you guys equally unhappy with deal on Song being a loan? Those 2 so called ‘to*****s’ brought us Lanzini (on loan, originally), Payet, Kouyate, Antonio, Adrian, Ogbonna, Cresswell and the rest..and, of course, Bilic…. Looks like there is plenty of evidence of ‘To$$ers’ around here, but it ain’t the 2 Daves!

    • To be honest with you Bellend, I don’t actually think that the 2 Daves are tossers, and am glad we’ve got them at the helm rather than Fernandez.
      Still, luckily I don’t really give a flying phuc what a melt like you thinks!

  6. story becoming a saga so much for new stadium no way will we get this guy on loan its a wonder that club in question has closed talks another wind up i feel
