“This is a club that you can perform, play Champions League, fight for the title every season, that’s a winning mentality that’s always fine for strikers. Also, it’s a good adventure in Holland, my daughter is born here” he told the club, admitting it feels like home.

Haller scored 51 goals in almost a hundred games during his previous stint with Utrecht and he is expected to leave his West Ham horror behind as he reunites with his former Utrecht coach, Erik ten Hag.
