According to a report from Football.London, West Ham are hopeful of selling Albian Ajeti at the end of the season for the same amount that they paid to acquire him from FC Basel last summer.

The 23-year-old moved to the London Stadium last August for around £8 million (BBC).
He has desperately struggled to establish himself with the Hammers, however.
Ajeti received hardly any game time under Manuel Pellegrini. And his situation has not improved under David Moyes.
In 11 appearances for West Ham, the Swiss striker has failed to rack up either a goal or an assist (Transfermarkt).
In eight Premier League appearances, the 23-year-old has attempted just two shots, with an accuracy rate of 0%. He has also made just 15 passes during those outings (premierleague.com).
It could be argued that the Switzerland international quite simply hasn’t been given enough of a chance to prove himself.
At the same time, however, when the 23-year-old has played, he has looked well off the pace.
Football.London claims that Ajeti is one of the prime candidates to be sold by West Ham this summer.
It is suggested that the east London outfit are hopeful that they will recoup the £8 million that they paid for his services nine months ago.
And if the Hammers manage to do that, it would be nothing short of a mircale, considering the financial effects of the ongoing global health crisis.
