The Canadian can play in holding midfield and even at right back, with his versatility possibly key to for the Hammers as they prepare for extra games next season.
He arrived at Besiktas from PSV Eindhoven in 2013 and was a regular under Bilic.
It is understood that the Turkish side would be willing to let him go should be want to reunite with his former boss.
