Ajax Sign Sebastien Haller from West Ham United for 22.5m Euros

Dutch league leader Ajax announced Friday it has agreed to sign striker Sebastien Haller from West Ham for 22.5 million euros ($27.5 million) in a move that will bolster the Amsterdam club’s injury-hit front line.

Ajax said that the 26-year-old Ivory Coast international will sign a contract until June 30, 2025.

The transfer reunites Haller with Ajax coach Eric ten Hag, his former coach at Eredivisie team FC Utrecht, where he played for two and a half years.

Haller made 50 appearances for West Ham after his 2019 transfer from Eintracht Frankfurt. He scored 14 goals for the Hammers.
