West Ham have completed the loan deal for Gokhan Tore, according to the Besiktas president Fikret Orman.
The attacking midfielder arrived in London on Thursday and has reportedly passed a medical ahead of formally signing on loan until the end of the season.
Orman told 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, Gokhan Gonul, Kerim Frei, Ricardo Quaresma, Aras Ozbiliz and Olcay Şahan.”
The Hammers will pay a £5million loan fee for Tore, 24, and they will have a buy-out clause option for the Turkey international at the end of his loan spell.
Besiktas initially wanted to sell Tore on a permanent transfer but reached a compromise with the Hammers who agreed to pay a loan fee.
