Former Chelsea player Gökhan Töre joins Besiktas JK on loan

Mike Stobe

The Blues academy product had a rotten first season in Russia, and will be spending the 2013/14 season in his native Turkey instead

Former Chelsea academy player Gokhan Tore will be heading to his fourth home in the last four years next season. He started out at Chelsea before being allowed to leave the club with Frank Arnesen, the man that signed him in 2009. He ended up spending the season at HSV, impressing anyone who regularly looks at the 'dribble' as a useful statistic. On to Russia then, where he struggled with injury and scandal, before the news today that he's heading out on loan for the 2013/14 season:

Beşiktaş JK football team acquired Gökhan Töre (born 20 January 1992 in Cologne,Germany) from the Russian first division side FC Rubin Kazan on loan for the upcoming 2013-14 season. The talented Turkish international plays right wingback.

Tore had an awful go of things last season, and frankly, getting out of Russia is probably the best thing for him at the moment. After having his move from HSV to Rubin mixed up with extortion charges, he got to spend the majority of the season out of the first team rotation.

This season he'll move on to a club in the middle of a match fixing scandal, even though that case is several years old. At least Tore had nothing to do with the club in 2011, so he shouldn't see his playing time affected because of this. Anyway, best of luck in Turkey Gokhan, and I hope things go well this season.
