DONE DEAL: West Ham sign Turkish International

West Ham United have signed Turkey international Gokhan Tore on a one-year loan deal from Besiktas.

They have confirmed that they have completed the one-year loan deal with an option to complete a permanent deal.

The 24-year old spent a time during his youth career at Chelsea before moving to German club Hamburg in 2011. He has since spent time at Russian club Rubin Kazan before moving to Besiktas in 2013.

West Ham boss Slaven Bilic has previously worked with the winger during the Croatians spell managing in Turkey. Tore was clearly impressed by his new manager.

Slaven is the main man for me. I have already worked under him and we know each other very well.

He is a fantastic manager and I could not say no to him. I wanted to join West Ham. I can say he is the best manager I have played for.
He knows the relationships with the players and how to talk with them. He is like a father and you feel comfortable. You feel like it is family. He was loved at Besiktas and it is the same at West Ham.

It is believed that West Ham can make the deal permanent for around £2.5million
