Hamburg have completed the signing of Chelsea youngster Gokhan Tore.

The 19-year-old winger has signed a three-year deal with the Bundesliga side, following another Stamford Bridge reserve team player, Jacopo Sala, and Michael Mancienne in heading to Hamburg recently.

Turkey Under-21 international Tore, an unused substitute for his country's senior side during Friday's European Championship qualifier against Belgium, joined the Blues in January 2009 from Bayer Leverkusen.

After completing his move, Tore told his new club's official website: "I will do my best for this club - a club with great tradition, located in a great city."

Hamburg sporting director Frank Arnesen, himself a former director of football at Chelsea, said: "Gokhan is a young and extremely talented player, he is also a physically strong player.

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