The 21-year-old was brought to the London Stadium from Halmstads by Slaven Bilic way back in the summer of 2017 for around £2.7 million, according to the Evening Standard.
The youngster struggled to establish himself at the London Stadium, however. He made just two senior appearances for the club. And failed to register either a goal or an assist.
In fact, Hammers insider ExWHUemployee has claimed that Bilic didn’t even know who Haksabanovic was when he was brought to east london.
The Montenegro international has enjoyed a successful spell on loan with IFK Norrkoping this season, however.
He racked up nine goals and eight assists in 36 outings (Transfermarkt).
Expressen claimed that Haksabanovic was close to leaving the Hammers for Djurgarden five months ago. But that move obviously failed to materialise for the 21-year-old.
But now the midfielder has left West Ham permanently, linking up with IFK Norrkoping for an undisclosed fee.

I thought he was tearing it up in Sweden and a lot of teams around Europe were looking at him? Hope we have a sell on clause.
