Last week, Besiktas chairman Fikret Orman was quoted as saying by Turkish Football that Tore has been loaned out to Premier League outfit West Ham.

West Ham manager Slaven Bilic worked with the 24-year-old winger at Besiktas, and it seems that the duo will be reunited at the Olympic Stadium in London for the 2016-17 campaign.

The Turkey international winger is a very good player and is very experienced, having also played in Germany and Russia in his career so far.

It is not always easy for players coming from the Turkish Super Lig to adapt to the Premier League, but Tore does have experience of English football.

The former Hamburg and Rubin Kazan winger was on the books of Chelsea from 2009 to 2011 and featured for the London club’s Under-21 side.
