Gokhan Tore sidelined through injury

Tore out for five weeks with quads muscle problem

West Ham United will have to deal with further injury issues after summer recruit Gokhan Tore was sidelined for five weeks with a quadriceps problem.

The Turkey international, who is one of Slaven Bilic's favourites, joined the Hammers on a temporary deal from Besiktas in the summer.

He has since struggled to make an impression in the top flight, and there are suggestions his loan spell could be terminated in the New Year.

According to The Sun, the Turk will have to contend with time in the physio room after he was ruled out for five weeks for picking up a quadriceps muscle injury in training last month.

Tore has been criticized for his performances since the start of the campaign with instances where he has been a no-show on the field for a club lingering in the drop zone.
