The transfer of Besiktas star Gokhan Tore to West Ham United has been completed, according to Turkish sources.

The Turkish international has been top of manager Slaven Bilic's wish list since he arrived at West Ham and, according to reports, the manager has finally landed his man.

West Ham, it is said, have agreed to pay €17.5million (approximately £13.3million) for the 24-year-old who worked along side Bilic at Besiktas for three years.

The deal is expected to be announced on 1 June (this Wednesday).

Tore moved to Besiktas three years ago when he spent the 2013/14 season on loan at the Vodafone Arena, before making the switch from Russian side Rubin Kazan permanent.

The Super Lig side paid in the region of €4.5million for his services and stand to make a €13million profit.

Only last month Besiktas vice-president Ahmet Nur Cebi claimed his club would not sell Tore for less than €30million.
