Hammers land exciting midfielder

West Ham are set to sign Sead Haksabanovic

West Ham have signed Montenegro attacking midfielder Sead Haksabanovic.

The 18-year-old joins the Hammers on a five-year contract for an undisclosed fee from Swedish club Halmstads BK, where he became the second-youngest player in Allsvenskan league history in April 2015.

In a statement on the official site he is described as having ” ย searing pace, outstanding technical ability and vision and an eye for goal,”

Haksabanovic has already made 70 first-team appearances and made his senior international debut in May.

Speaking to the official site he said: โ€œI’m really happy to be here – it’s a dream come true.

โ€œWest Ham is a big club and it is a nice feeling to have signed. The move happened quite fast – we heard that they wanted me, so I was interested to hear the plan for me and when I did I was very pleased.

“I am an attacking player, I like to dribble and shoot, but I work hard for the team. I am really looking forward to getting started, I have watched quite a few West Ham games in the Premier League and I can see that they have some great players and great fans.

“Now I just want to get used to being with the team and then hopefully play some games at some point next season.”

  1. Sully special ? 2.7 mill , had trials with mancs and city , lids and chelski ?
    Is he for this year or next , the quote is confusing ( next year ) ??18 years old ๐Ÿ˜•
    Booziboozi bloke seems more realistic for our needs ? Ain’t Snodgrass and fegouli gone yet๐Ÿ˜Ž

  2. Croatian press(index.hr) wrote that transfer is worth about 3 milion โ‚ฌ…

  3. I shouldnt think Sullivan had anything to do with him.He is highly rated actually,i have seen him linked to many clubs before.

  4. Whats a Sully special anyway,i have seen us sign lots of **** that had nothing to do with Sully but he always seems to get the blame for the flops.

    • I thought every one knew that everything is SUGO’s fault. I blame them for all the crap weather we are having

      • It is funny actually that anyone under 6 or 7mill turns in to a Sully punt.Hippo head & Bilic have both signed some right shyte in the last few years that have been worse than so called Sully punts.I mean apart from a possible couple we aint got a clue which he has instigated the moves for but they are still called sully punts if they go to rat shyt.I mean if we didnt know Bilic knew Emenike,Jelavic & Tore they would have gone down as guaranteed Sullivan screw ups ๐Ÿ˜‚

    • So the kid is a cheap flop ? Sully has nothing to do with him ?? Sully does every deal and if he can get a bargain ( sully special ) either for Nada or cheap and a good prospect he will ? Maybe I got it wrong , its Herbie hammer who does the deals sully just rang to tell me lol
      Thought I mentioned other clubs as well ?? So who mentioned he was a lump of shyte !
      It must be pishing down Essex have a look out of the window lolโ˜” its confirmed its Herbie’s fault not Sully’s or even sugos ๐Ÿ‘

      • Calm down Laz,wasnt even on about you,i was on about what AJ said.It is bolloxs calling all the cheaper players that bomb out Sully players though.I dont even particularly like the geezer but still know he gets shyt for players others probably signed ๐Ÿ˜

        • Didn’t think it was me rads just making a point to AJ Essex they jumped the gun on a nothing comment , I wasn’t digging the hobbit I was praising him , sometimes he gets cracks it ๐Ÿ˜‰

  5. From what i can see on you tube..this boy is good on ball and pretty fast…so,only question is:will he play for development squad or for the first team?

  6. Guess we will soon find out jj61 ๐Ÿ˜ƒ
    Development i reckon.

  7. That’s all I wanted to know 61 the signing shyte came out of shyte ? Never heard of him before !!!
