Ajax Announce €22.5M Signing Of Sebastien Haller From West Ham

Sebastien Haller has now officially become an Ajax player having departed West Ham.

The 26-year-old moved to East London with great expectations, having impressed during his time with Eintracht Frankfurt.

Despite the move not being a total disaster, The Hammers could be forgiven for thinking that they did not get full value for money.

Haller never truly established himself as West Ham’s starting no. 9, with wide-man Michail Antonio ahead of him in the pecking order in that department of late.

Both West Ham and the forward have evidently seen it best to end the relationship at this stage, with Ajax confirming via their official website that they have completed a deal to sign him.

Ajax confirm on their official website that they have forked out €22.5M to sign Haller this winter, a healthy sum banked by West Ham that will presumably be re-invested this month.

West Ham will be thankful for Haller’s service, but equally thankful to have the Ivorian off their books.
