West Ham midfielder Sead Haksabanovic could be soon recalled from his loan spell with IFK Norrkoping if he continues to impress, according to a report which was published by popular West Ham source Claret and Hugh. 

“The boy is doing brilliantly now he is getting a fair crack of the whip and  being followed very closely by the management team. His best Hammers days may be in front of him!

“We have some great options among the loanees with Cullen, Diangana and Saeed doing really well at their various loan clubs,” the source claimed that they were informed via email. 

West Ham boss Manuel Pellegrini as well as director of football Mario Husillos are tracking the progress of the player, added the report.

The 20-year-old Hammers man has been in sparkling form recently as he has gone on to score five goals as well as notch six assists during his last nine games for IFK Norrkoping.

The move back to his homeland appears to have rejuvenated the player’s confidence and form.

The West Ham youngster had a failed spell with Spanish side Malaga during the first half of last season and went on to make just two La Liga appearances in the process.

Haksabanovic earned a move to the Hammers in 2017 following impressive displays for Halmstads BK.

Born in Sweden, he went on to represent Sweden U17 and U19 but made a surprise decision to commit his senior international future to Montengero.

Even if Haksabanovic cannot be slotted into the Hammers first-team plans for the second half of the season, it may be worth it to recall him from loan in January.

He could then perhaps be loaned out to a Championship team. This will allow him to gain more experience at the highest level in England as well as familiarize himself with the style of play in England.

If he does manage to shine in the Championship, it will be an indication that he could be ready to be included in the West Ham first-team.
