Writing on Twitter, reliable club insider ExWHUemployee has dropped a revelation over striker Sebastien Haller – coming after he scored an outrageous overhead kick on Wednesday evening as his side dropped points at home to Crystal Palace in a 1-1 draw.
Described as the ‘real deal’ when he joined the Hammers a year ago, Haller has somewhat polarised the fan base since then – with many believing that makeshift lone forward option Michail Antonio is a better fit for David Moyes.

ExWHUemployee drops behind the scenes claim
As the Englishman continues to recover from his latest injury setback, currently back out in training but not yet match fit, the Irons have had to rely on Haller for presence up front as they chase a previously unlikely Europa League spot.
The Ivory Coast international buried a sumptuous overhead kick beyond the helpless Vicente Guaita – with Haller impressing critics as he put on a redeeming display against their London rivals.
Taking to social media, ExWHUemployee shared what he knows more personally about the £27 million-rated ace – going on to claim he is a ‘really nice’ individual behind the scenes.
In fairness I’ve heard a lot of staff say he is a really nice fella and they all like him. He is apparently a lot more happy and friendly than his on pitch persona suggests https://t.co/qeuxMAms4j

Transfer Tavern take
Indeed, according to the insider, those within the club ‘all like’ Haller as an individual – but that hasn’t stopped GSB from looking at other striking options.
As Antonio slowly nears a return, Haller will be hoping to repeat his heroics against Palace on a more regular basis.
