Sead Haksabanovic leaves West Ham United for IFK Norrkoping

West Ham United can confirm that Sead Haksabanovic has joined Swedish club IFK Norrkoping on a permanent basis for an undisclosed fee.

The Montenegro international spent the 2019 Allsvenskan season on loan with Norrkoping, having returned to the country of his birth in January last year.

Attacking midfielder Haksabanovic joined West Ham in summer 2017 from Halmstads BK and made his debut in an EFL Cup win over Bolton Wanderers in September of that year. A second and final appearance in Claret and Blue came in January 2018, in an FA Cup tie against Shrewsbury Town.

The 21-year-old was loaned to Spanish club Malaga in summer 2018, before returning to Sweden with Norrkoping, for whom he made 36 appearances in all competitions last season.

West Ham United would like to thank Sead for his efforts and wish him the best for his future career.

Dan Chesters tipped for the first team by ExWHUemployee

‘ExWHUemployee’, who has a popular Irons-focused Twitter account, commented on the future of Hammers youth player Dan Chesters on a recent edition of ‘The West Ham Way Podcast’.

The 18-year-old attacking midfielder has made 17 appearances in all competitions for West Ham’s youth teams this season according to Transfermarkt, scoring one goal and providing five assists in those games.

In his recent podcast appearance, ExWHUemployee names Chesters as one of “a number of young academy players” to have recently signed a new deal with the Hammers.

Earlier this week, West Ham announced that Chesters is one of seven academy players to have signed their first professional contracts with the club. In their post sharing this news, the teenager is described as “the type of player that West Ham fans associate with the club”. The Hammers’ official website goes on to tout Chesters’ creativity, in addition to his tenacity in this post, before declaring that he is “one to look out for”.

ExWHUemployee shared a similarly positive assessment of the player during his recent appearance on ‘The West Ham Way Podcast’. He says that Chesters is “meant to have a really big future ahead of him”, before going on to describe the 18-year-old as “an academy player that you’d look out for”. He then declares that the young playmaker is someone “who could be knocking on the door of the first team” in a few years’ time.

TIF Thoughts…

These comments from ExWHUemployee, as well as the comments that were made about Chesters on the Hammers’ official website, indicate that there is plenty of belief in the teenager in and around the club at present. With that in mind, the fact that he has signed his first professional contract with the club may be exciting news for Irons supporters.


West Ham ready to sign Tiemoue Bakayoko permanently

West Ham are interested in signing the Chelsea midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko this summer.

As per reports (via Sportwitness), the player is no longer in Frank Lampard’s first team plans and he will be allowed to leave.

West Ham are prepared to sign the 25-year-old on a permanent deal and they are ready to meet his wage demands as well.

AC Milan are keen on the player as well but they are not financially as well equipped as the Hammers.

It will be interesting to see if West Ham manage to sign the player in the coming months.

Bakayoko has done well in Serie A and Ligue 1 during his loan spells with Milan and Monaco after struggling to make his mark in the Premier League.

If West Ham can get the best out of him, he could improve them a lot. The midfielder was highly rated during his time in France.

West Ham could use someone like him in their midfield alongside Declan Rice. Bakayoko would add drive, presence and passing to the side.

It remains to be seen if West Ham can agree on a deal with their London rivals. If they can meet Chelsea’s demands, the transfer shouldn’t be a problem.

The Blues are expected to spend heavily this summer and they will look to recoup some of the money through sales of their fringe players.
