West Ham insider claims Bilic didn't know who Haksabanovic was

According to West Ham insider ExWHUemployee, Slaven Bilic did not even know who Sead Haksabanovic was when he moved to the London Stadium in the summer of 2017.

The 20-year-old joined the Hammers for £2.4 million from Halmstads. And he has gone on to make just two senior appearances for the east London outfit.

In other words, he has been a total flop.

The four-capped Montenegro international is currently on loan with IFK Norrköping. And it is unlikely that he will have any kind of future in east London.

It seems as though Haksabanovic’s time with West Ham was destined to fail from the start, however.

Well-respected insider ExWHUemployee claims that he the Hammers only agreed to sign the midfielder if an intermediary agent managed to get Marko Arnautovic to come to the club:

Is it little wonder that the Montenegro starlet has has little success at West Ham?

And now with Manuel Pellegrini at the helm, it is highly likely that he will not be seen in a Hammers strip ever again.
