Chelsea sign Gokhan Tore

Chelsea have snapped up Turkish youth international Gokhan Tore.

The 17-year-old German-born winger arrived from Bayer Leverkusen, where he has been since the age of five.

Tore has agreed a three-and-half-year deal at Stamford Bridge and joins the Chelsea academy with immediate affect.

Meanwhile, another youngster Vincenzo Camilleri has left the club.

Chelsea caused uproar in Italy when they lured the central defender away from Reggina at the age of just 15.

Reggina reported the English side to Fifa and Uefa, but there was little they could do to prevent the move last year,

However, after less than a year the club have allowed Camilleri to depart and he is heading back to Reggina.

Never heard of him but always ready to welcome the young talent. As for Camilleri, what a letdown after so much trouble over his signing.

Tore means 'goals' in German. Hope to see plenty from this guy, although, as he's a winger, it would be nice to see some half-decent crosses. First things first.

Apparently his name is written like this: Gökhan Töre. No idea what "töre" means, though.

Hello, I would like to introduce myself, as you can see, I'm LFS Moustache (good isn't it) and he will be another Stoch so hopefully he will get called up, only 17, but Kakuta's done it, why can't he. Maybe another few years yet but I'm looking forward to seeing him for the youth team, is he eligible for the Youth Cup?

Oh by the way, Maksimov, if you read the post by Backbiter you'll see what Tore means.;)

If he was born in Cologne wouldn't he be German?

There are a lot of Turkish people living in Germany. I guess he could apply for a German citizenship as he's lived there for so long, though. As a sidenote...Forssell was born in Germany as well, but he's a Finnish citizen.
