Besiktas star winger Gokhan Tore is expected to officially join West Ham tomorrow a source close to the Istanbul giants told Emre Sarigul.

There had been rumours in the Turkish press that there was a last minute hitch over some of the payments which delayed the move.

The paperwork is however, complete and Besiktas are expected to make an official announcement tomorrow which coincides with the end of the Eid festival.

Besiktas were unable to officially finalise and announce the transfer until the end of the holiday period due to business’ being shut.

Tore has passed his West Ham medical and already reached an agreement with the club. The 24-year-old will join on a one-year loan with a future buyout clause.

The loan fee is expected to be in the £3-4 million range and the Hammers will be able to sign him on a permanent deal for a total of £13 million.

Tore will not have an issue with work permits as he was born and grew up in Germany and was a Chelsea player as a youth.
