Confirmed: International winger seals Stamford Bridge exit

Published Add your comment

Highly rated Chelsea winger Gokhan Tore has completed a summer switch to Bundesliga outfit Hamburg reports

The 19-year-old Turkish U21 international has become the third Blues starlet to move to Germany in a matter of weeks, following Michael Mancienne and Jacopo Sala to the Imtech Arena.

The flurry of Stamford Bridge exits has come as a result of the transfer of former Chelsea director of football Frank Arnesen, who recently took up the post of sporting director at Hamburg.

Tore joins on a three-year deal, and having failed to make the breakthrough at Chelsea will be hoping for more first team opportunities in the Bundesliga, telling the club's official website:

"I will do my best for this club - a club with great tradition, located in a great city."


Ex-Blues director Arnesen continued, "Gokhan is a young and extremely talented player, who is also physically strong.

"We must and will give him the necessary time he needs to continue his positive development."

With Chelsea currently on the lookout for a new manager following the recent sacking of Carlo Ancelotti, it remains to be seen how many more players Blues owner Roman Abramovich will allow to leave Stamford Bridge before the next appointment is made.
