According to The Guardian, the London outfit had to pay Besiktas a loan fee of £2.5 million to secure the services of the 24-year-old winger for the 2016-17 campaign.
It has also been reported that for West Ham to make the deal permanent next summer, they would have to pay the Turkish club a further £10m.
Tore has arrived at West Ham with a strong reputation and will be expected to hit the ground running.
The Turkey international winger worked with Hammers’ manager Slaven Bilic at Besiktas.
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.
West Ham fans have taken to Twitter to give their reaction to the signing of Tore on a season-long loan deal.
