The Swedish outlet reports on their website that the 19-year-old attacker is closing in on move to AIK, with a permanent option potentially included within the deal.
The report adds that the Montenegrin winger could be presented as an AIK player very soon, a move which comes after Haksabanovic had his loan spell with Spanish side Malaga cut short just half way through [West Ham Way, 29/11, 33.03].
Fingers crossed that this move works out for Haksabanovic, as it clearly did not work out for him while he was at Malaga previously. He only made two appearances for the Spanish side, so it is no surprise to see him nearing a move to AIK this month. The youngster needs a club where he can continue with his development, as seeming as West Ham will not be able to be the club that provides that, another move abroad seems to be the most logical step. What he needs is regular first team opportunities, and it is almost certain that AIK will be able to provide him with that if the move is confirmed. Hopefully this experience can do Haksabanovic the world of good, and that he can return to West Ham as a much better player. While AIK are not the best club out there, starting regularly will give him the confidence he needs – something which was no doubt lost when he was frozen out at Malaga for the first half of the season.
