Besiktas not interested in return of West Ham loan winger Tore

It seems nobody wants poor Gokhan Tore.

The Sun is reporting that neither West Ham United or Besiktas are keen to have the winger play for them.

Turkey international Tore is currently on loan at Slaven Bilic's West Ham from Besiktas but it is understood that Hammers officials see the summer signing as a 'disaster' and they are trying to find a way out.

It is believed that negotiations have commenced regarding a mutually beneficial agreement between the two clubs but Besiktas president Fikret Orman is adamant that the player will not be back in Istanbul anytime soon.

“We will definitely get one or two players in because of injuries but 100 per cent there is not a chance that Tore will come back to Besiktas," he said.

The 24-year-old, who is nursing a thigh injury, is on around £40,000-a-week at West Ham but has so far played eight times for the East London club including five times in the Premier League.
