There were rumours circulating in the Turkish press that the transfer had a hitch due to a payment dispute between Tore and Besiktas.
The reason the completion of the transfer was delayed by a few days was in fact due to business’ being on holiday due to the Eid celebration.
Besiktas will be able to complete the paperwork tomorrow which is when the Eid festival ends in Turkey.
The Black Eagles are expected to officially announce the transfer tomorrow. Tore will join West Ham on a one-year loan and the Hammers will have a future buyout clause option.
Tore will be able to play in the Premier League without a work permit as he was a Chelsea youth and also counts as an EU citizen player as he was born and raised in Germany.
