West Ham have completed the transfer of Gokhan Tore on a one-year loan with a future buy-out clause option a source close to Besiktas revealed to Turkish-football.com.
We took a look at how West Ham fans reacted to the news on social media.
Slaven Bilic is a big fan of Tore and considering how well some of last summers transfer turned out the fans seem more than willing to get behind players he wants.
Gokhan Tore to West Ham set to be completely imminently. Loan with view to buy. Can't say I've seen much of him but Bilic rates him highly.

Besiktas fans were generally not very impressed. They lost their star man on a loan. The club initially wanted an upfront transfer fee but Tore was keen on going ahead and getting the move back to the Premier League.
#gokhantore Loan is joke!!!
