A lot of West Ham fans have reacted to the news that the club have rejected a bid for their 21-year-old midfielder Sead Haksabanovic.
Swedish media outlet Fotboll Direkt report that the Premier League side turned down an offer of around £5m from an unnamed club for the Montenegro international.
The Hammers signed the player back in August 2017 from Swedish side Halmstads BK and was acquired as a player for the future, as per Transfermarkt. At Halmstad he had a very solid record for such a young age, scoring 13 goals and picking up 10 assists in 70 appearances.
However, he has only been given two chances in the first team at West Ham and he has had to accept either playing for the under-23s or being sent out on loan. He has gained experience in Spain with Malaga and now finds himself back in Sweden on loan at IFK Norrköping, where he has scored nine goals and managed eight assists in 36 games, as per Transfermarkt.

Should give him a chance to play

Nothing sums West Ham up more than the amount of young players who are touted as having huge potential being given only one or two games – often cup games against woeful footballing opposition – before being discarded as not being up to the standard required. The list is endless.

Very good player. Should’ve been given a long run in the first team ages ago.
