West Ham sign Sebastien Haller in record-breaking deal

17 Jul 2019, 17:30

West Ham have announced the signing of French prolific striker Sebastien Haller from Eintracht Frankfurt in a new club record deal. 

The highly sought-after forward, who turned 25 in June, joins the Hammers on a five-year deal with an option of a further 12 months for a fee thought to be in the region of  £40m.

The transfer record was initially held by Issa Diop, before the club signed Felipe Anderson, with Haller now taking the mantle. 

A German Cup winner with Eintracht in 2018, Haller becomes the Hammers' fourth summer signing of the season ahead of the new campaign. 

"I feel really great,” said the center-forward. “I think it’s a really good opportunity for me to be here," 

"It means a lot (to be the record signing). It proves that the club [has] really wanted me for a long time. I felt this desire to sign me and I’m really happy to sign, also. it is an ambitious club, a nice club, a nice city and nice fans too," 

"I will always give 100% and respect the club. I think this is a normal thing and that I can guarantee. I know it’s a big transfer and there is a lot of expectation around me," 

Haller will join up with his new teammates when they return from the Premier League Asia Trophy in China, where they are facing Manchester City in the first match.
