West Ham finalise £13.5m deal as they clinch fifth summer signing - report
By Harvey Byrne
West Ham have agreed an £11million loan-to-buy option and £2.5million loan fee for Besiktas star Gokhan Tore, according to a report.
Turkish football website Turkish Football claim that West Ham have agreed to sign the star winger in a £13.5million transfer package.
The website cites a source close to Besiktas that claims that West Ham have agreed a £2.5million fee to loan Tore for the 2016-17 season with an option to buy also included in the contract which is set at £11million.
This comes after Jack Sullivan, the son of co-owner David Sullivan, tweeted that The Hammers would be announcing a signing by the end of the week.
The 24-year-old winger joined the Turkish club from Russian side Rubin Kazan in July 2013 and has three years remaining on his contract at Besiktas.

The explosive winger has been a long-term target for the Hammers with manager Slaven Bilic having worked with Tore while the pair were at Besiktas.
Tore has had a steady season, scoring six goals and providing nine assists in 35 appearances this season.
Tore will become the Hammers’ fifth signing following the arrivals of Sofiane Feghouli, Toni Martinez, Havard Nordtveit and Domingos Quina.
