Chelsea snap up Turkish youngster


Chelsea have signed Turkish youth international midfielder Gokhan Tore from Bayer Leverkusen.

The 17-year-old attacking midfielder, who joined Leverkusen in 1999, has signed a contract which will keep him at Stamford Bridge until 2012.

Tore represented Leverkusen at under-17 and under-19 level but has not featured in any first-team matches.

Neither club has revealed any financial details of the deal, which is Chelsea's first action in this transfer window.
