Haksabanovic departs Hammers for Sweden

WEST HAM UNITED midfielder, Sead Haksabanovic, has joined IFK Norrkoping permanently following a season-long loan deal with the Swedish outfit.

The 21-year-old initially arrived at the London Stadium from Halmstads BK in 2017 but appeared just twice in the Hammers first team but was unable to break into the east Londoners Premier League line-up. The player moved to Malaga on loan in the summer of 2018 then a similar deal took the Montenegro international to Norrkoping where he appeared on 36 occasions for VitaBlå.

Meanwhile, West Ham continued to ramp up ahead of their Premier League return next Saturday with a 2-1 victory over London rivals, Crystal Palace in a match played in playing three 30-minute thirds at the London Stadium.
