Sebastian Haller after €22.5m Signing with Ajax: I Can Compete in Champions League


Ajax have confirmed the signing of Sebastien Haller from West Ham for a reported €22.5m (£20.3m), Eurosport report.

The amount is less than half what the Hammers paid in 2019.

“My dream is to play and score on Sunday,” he told Ajax TV. “This is a club where I can compete in the Champions League and chase titles every season and it’s that winning mentality that suits me.”

The conclusion of two days of negotiations on Friday means Haller will be available to debut for Ajax when they host PSV Eindhoven in a top of the table clash on Sunday.

Haller has signed a four-and-a-half-year deal.

Haller, 26, returns to the Dutch league, where he scored 51 goals for Utrecht between 2014 and 2017.

He revives his relationship with Ajax coach Erik ten Hag, in charge of Utrecht when the French-born striker played there.

He has endured a frustrating time since his £45m club-record move to the London Stadium.
