Tore makes Hamburg switch

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.”
