Sebastien Haller scores SEVEN MINUTES into full Ajax debut after West ham transfer exit

WEST HAM flop Sebastien Haller scored just SEVEN minutes into his full Ajax debut.

The Ivorian left London Stadium in a £20million deal last week.

Haller joined the East Londoners from Eintracht Frankfurt for a club record £45m in the summer of 2019.

But he failed to deliver on the early promise and infuriated fans with his complete lack of effort when standing in for injured Michail Antonio this season.

However, the 26-year-old appears to have had a new lease of life.

He made his first Ajax appearance last Sunday when he came off the bench during their 2-2 draw with PSV and had a goal disallowed.

And he obviously impressed manager Erik ten Hag who started him at Twente on Thursday night.

Haller repaid that faith just seven minutes in when he headed a cross into the bottom right corner from a cross wide on the right.

David Moyes never seemed to fancy Haller who was signed under Manuel Pellegrini's reign at the Irons.

In a short statement upon Haller's departure, the Hammers said: “West Ham United would like to thank Sébastien for his contribution to the club and wish him all the best for his future career.”


This is Haller's second spell in the Eredivisie having spent two-and-a-half years with FC Utrecht before moving to Eintracht Frankfurt and then the Premier League.

Haller's departure means Antonio is West Ham's only out-and-out striker.

They had been linked with a move for Lyon ace Moussa Dembele but the striker has snubbed the chance of a return to the Prem.

Bournemouth's Josh King is on Moyes' wanted list but the Cherries' asking price may scupper a January move.

And Reims striker Boulaye Dia is said to be negotiating terms with the East Londoners ahead of a £15m transfer.
