West Ham United winger Sead Haksabanovic was no doubt tipped for big things when he signed from Swedish outfit Halmstad in 2017.
However, since arriving in East London, he has made no Premier League appearances for the club – which meant he was swiftly sent out on loan to Spanish second-tier club Malaga CF.
His stint in Spain was meant to give him the first team experienc he needed in order to get closer to West Ham’s first team, but that has not according to plan as he only has one appearance under his belt.
If he thought that things could not get any, worse, they did – and now Spanish outlet Diario Sur has reported that the 19-year-old is thinking of coming back to West Ham in January, half way through his temporary spell with Malaga.
Manuel Pellegrini must be sweating at the thought of potentially having Haksabanovic back in the New Year, especially after his abysmal spell in Spain so far.
There is no point in the youngster coming back as he is most definitely not going to be guaranteed any game time, even for the under-23s.
If the 5ft 8in [Transfermarkt] player does return, then West Ham will need to work out what to do with his future, as having a player on the books who has hardly played this season is a complete waste of money, and the last thing they would want to do is start throwing money down the drain.
It is a shame, as a player who was once touted for big things now has a very bleak future at West Ham, as Pellegrini is unlikely to give him the time of day any time soon – so he must now accept that his career with the Irons is pretty much over.
