Striker Sebastien Haller has joined Ajax Amsterdam from West Ham on a four and a half year deal, the Dutch champions announced on Friday.
The club said the fee of $27.5 million — considerably less than the estimated 50 million euros West Ham paid Frankfurt in the summer of 2019 — makes the 26-year-old the most expensive signing in the Dutch Eredivisie.
“It’s like I am coming back home,” said Haller in a video tweeted by Ajax. “Looking forward to starting.”
He is in line to make his debut for the Eredivisie leaders on Sunday against title challengers PSV Eindhoven.
Ajax will meet Lille in the last 32 of Europa League in February.
