He isn’t the first to say a sorrowful farewell to a player who looks likely to set the  Hammers on fire during the remainder of the season.

He joined the Hammers for around £40 million and arrived at the London Stadium after intense speculation he was on his way from the Dutch giants.

Kudus officially completed a move to the London Stadium in late August and there is now fan fever as we await this sparkling jewel’s first match for us.

Gullit loves him as a player and has been explaining how the young man is forever creating things on the pitch and even says every goal he scored for Ajax was quality.

He told Dutch broadcaster Ziggo Sport when it was clear Kudus was on the way out:“He makes sure that something happens. “He is a great player. He is always busy and the goals he scored are really good.

“It is a pity that such a player is leaving.”

“He ensures that you continue to play football and has the threat up front so that one can create space for others.

“Those are the players you need. “He adds gravy, otherwise Ajax are a dry meatball.”
