Montenegro attacking midfielder Sead Haksabanovic has signed a five-year contract with West Ham United F.C. for an undisclosed fee from Swedish club Halmstads BK.
The 18-year-old teenager becomes the third former Halmstads player to join the club following Sweden stars Niclas Alexandersson and Fredrik Ljungberg.
“I’m really happy to be here – it’s a dream come true. West 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.” Haksabanovic said
Right now, the Sweden-born player is expected to show off his wide range of skills to the Hammers, London Stadium and to the Premier League.
Haksabanovic became the second-youngest player to appear in the history of the Allsvenskan league when he made his debut in April 2015 at the aged of 15 for Halmstads.
