West Ham fans criticise Albian Ajeti's display vs Newport

Albian Ajeti made his competitive debut for West Ham last night in the Carabao Cup against Newport County.

The Switzerland international arrived in east London from Basel earlier this summer for around £8 million, according to BBC Sport.

And he is expected to provide quality cover and competition for Sebastien Haller and Javier Hernandez.

The 22-year-old, who earns £30,000 per week according to Claret and Hugh, boasts an impressive goalscoring record, with 43 goals in 96 games for Basel to his name.

West Ham and the Premier League will be a real step up for Ajeti, however. The pace and intensity of the English game will be like nothing he has ever experienced before.

And he must be given time to adapt to his new surroundings.

Many foreign imports find it hard to hit the ground running when they move to the Premier League. And the Swiss ace will be no different.

Some West Ham fans took to Twitter after last night’s win over Newport in reaction to Ajeti’s display for the Hammers:
