It’s official: Sebastien Haller has left West Ham to become an Ajax player.
– AFC Ajax (@AFCAjax) January 8, 2021
Haller moved to East London with high expectations, having impressed during his time with Eintract Frankfurt.
Although the move was not a total disaster, West Ham could be forgiven for thinking it did not get full value for its money.
Haller never really established himself as the starting number for the Hammers. 9, with Michail Antonio ahead of him in the pecking order in that department lately.
Both West Ham and Haller have evidently seen that it is better to end the relationship at this stage, and Ajax has confirmed this through their official website who have completed a deal to sign him.
Ajax confirms on its official website that it has disbursed € 22.5 million to sign Haller this winter, a healthy sum deposited by West Ham that will presumably be reinvested this month.
West Ham will be grateful for Haller’s service, but equally grateful to have him off his books.
