Flocking to a tweet by ExWHUemployee, who shared an admission by former striker Sebastien Haller in an interview with Ajax’s official website, many Irons supporters had plenty to say after the Ivory Coast international admitted a move to the Eredivisie was in the pipeline for ‘months‘.
Haller, who completed his move to the Dutch giants in a deal worth £20.25 million, revealed to his news club that he was in contact over a move months before it was finalised in January.

West Ham fans react to Haller admission
“Wow. All clicks into place with that news then. No real effort in his performances and no celebrations when he did score. Everything reverts to behind the scenes and we only see front of house. Welcome to this weeks edition of the west ham utd soap opera.”
can we celebrate now please”
“Worse than Arnie”
“makes sense now.”
“If the club didn’t know they’d be trying to sue them.
Maybe he was told he wasn’t wanted and he wanted to avoid a injury so the move didn’t collapse and he wasn’t where he wasn’t wanted.
NO way would Sullivan miss out on extra money if we didn’t know”
