By Amir Mir
West Ham will confirm the signing of winger Gökhan Töre from Besiktas on Monday, according to a report.
It is said that the transfer has stalled because of the Muslims festival Eid which means all Turkish businesses were on holiday.
As reported by Football Insider, the wide man has already completed a medical at West Ham.
As the winger was on the books at Chelsea as a youngster, it means he will not require a work permit and will join the Hammers on a season-long loan with the option to buy after his loan expires.
