West Ham United should not try to keep on-loan winger

Gokhan Tore has told Fanatik that he “cannot wait” to return to Besiktas when his loan at West Ham United expires.

What’s the word?

The 25-year-old winger joined the Hammers from the Turkish outfit last summer on a season-long loan with a view to a permanent £10m deal.

However, it has not been plain sailing for Tore given that he has made just eight appearances in all competitions.

Granted, the Turkey international did suffer a knee injury in October, which has kept him on the sidelines for a lengthy spell.

Tore has been seeking treatment in his homeland, and even though he is still on loan at the Premier League outfit, he is already eyeing a return to his parent club.

The winger told Fanatik:

“I am in my own country, I speak Turkish. To speak English in the UK I needed an interpreter. I feel more comfortable here. I cannot wait to return [to Besiktas]. I believe everything will be beautiful after the recovery of my heath first.”

Should West Ham go for permanent deal?

In fairness to Tore, his injury woes have prevented him from showcasing his talent at the London Stadium.

However, if it is true that a £10m option is on the table to sign him, the Hammers should refrain from triggering it as they have not seen enough to warrant a permanent move.

These quotes from Tore clearly indicate that he has no intention of extending his stay in East London anyway, therefore trying to seal a transfer would be pointless.

As it stands, the Hammers are still paying his wages while he continues recovery.

With that in mind, it would be best for the pair to cut ties and move on.
