'Better than Rashford' - West Ham fans react as attacker signs long-term deal

By Danny Wright

West Ham confirmed Sead Haksabanovic as their fifth summer signing on Monday – and the Irons supporters gave a rather mixed reaction on Twitter.

The Hammers announced on their official Twitter account and official website that the 18-year-old attacker had penned a long-term five-year deal at the London Stadium after completing his move from Swedish side Halmstads BK for an undisclosed fee.

The one-time Montenegro international joins Pablo Zabaleta, Joe Hart, Marko Arnautovic and Javier Hernandez as Slaven Bilic’s list of summer recruits continues to grow ahead of his side’s Premier League opener against Manchester United this weekend.

Haksabanovic became the second youngest player in Swedish top-flight history when he made his Halmstads debut in 2015 and has ever since held down a spot in their senior squad.

The former Sweden youth international scored five goals in 22 appearances across all competitions last season, and even earned his maiden cap for Montenegro in June.

Haksabanovic appears to have been a rather unknown name to most of the West Ham supporters, who will be hoping that their new attacking talent can come good and reach his potential in the future.

One supporter even said that he believes the teenager is “better than” Man United’s Marcus Rashford.

Here is a selection of their tweets:
