Gokhan Tore has expressed his delight on Twitter, after becoming a West Ham United player.

Tore has signed on loan for the season at the Olympic Stadium from Besiktas.

The winger is expected to be a key part of Slaven Bilic’s plans at West Ham, and he reacted on social media soon after his signing was announced.

Tore was one of Bilic’s top targets this summer, as he is a player the Croatian boss knows well.

The pair worked together during Bilic’s time in charge at Besiktas, and there is hope that a reunion will be successful for both parties.

Tore has established a reputation as one of the most exciting players in Turkey, with his work rate catching the eye.

The 24-year-old helped Besiktas win the Turkish top flight last season, by contributing four goals in six assists in 24 appearances.

Tore will not join up with his new West Ham teammates until later in pre-season, as they are currently on tour in America.
