How is Sead Haksabanovic getting on since leaving West Ham on loan?

Sead Haksabanovic joined West Ham from Halmstads BK in the summer of 2017, for a fee believed to be worth £2.7m, according to the Evening Standard.

At the time it seemed to be a strange signing from then manager Slaven Bilic.

The 20-year-old went on to make just two appearances for the Hammers. And neither of those were in the Premier League.

Haksabanovic was shipped out on loan to Malaga in the summer of 2018, but he made just two appearances for the La Liga outfit.

He returned to West Ham in January 2019, before being immediately loan back out to Swedish side IFK Norrköping.

So how has the Montenegro international got on since leaving the London Stadium?

Haksabanovic has enjoyed his best spell as a senior pro during his time in Sweden with Norrköping. He has racked up extremely impressive numbers, with six goals and eight assists to his name in 29 appearances thus far.

The 20-year-old’s team currently sit in fifth spot in the league table with four games still remaining. And he has provided them with a real cutting edge in the final third this season.

The attacking midfielder has proven that he has the talent, but perhaps his skills are better suited to the more pedestrian paced Swedish league.

It is hard to envisage a future for him at West Ham. But if he continues to perform for IFK Norrköping, he will certainly give Manuel Pellegrini something to think about at the very least.
