West Ham winger Sead Haksabanovic could be set to leave the club this January.

According to reports in the Swedish media, Haksabanovic might be returning to West Ham from his loan spell at Malaga to force through a move back to Sweden.

This could be either a permanent transfer or another loan, as per this report.

West Ham signed promising youngster Haksabanovic from Swedish side Halmstads BK in summer 2017.

Initially thought to be one for the future, the 19-year-old impressed early on and earned himself two outings for the first-team last season.

Haksabanovic made his debut in the EFL Cup against Bolton Wanderers and then featured in the FA Cup against Wigan Athletic.

The ex-Sweden youth international then featured as part of Manuel Pellegrini’s plans in pre-season.


But the Chilean decided the young attacking midfielder needed a loan spell to aid his development.

Haksabanovic was sent on loan to Malaga, who were relegated to the Spanish second tier for this campaign.

But in nearly half a season with Malaga, the Montenegro international has managed just one substitute cameo.

With game time limited at Malaga, West Ham are set to recall the out-of-favour winger in January.

Swedish media outlet Sport Expressen reports that AIK and West Ham are locked in talks over Haksabanovic’s potential return to Sweden.

The Swedish-born winger previously starred in the Allsvenskan for Halmstads BK and now he could move to AIK.

The report adds that this could either be a permanent move or West Ham could look to loan him out again.
