Hammers set to sign another international

Published Add your comment

West Ham have reportedly agreed a deal to sign Ajax winger Miralem Sulejmani on a season-long loan.

The Hammers have been linked with the Serbian ace for a number of weeks, and the 21-year-old has revealed that he is relishing the opportunity to play in the Premier League.

"I am happy that I will play in the strongest league in Europe," he told Sportski Zumal.

"I think that I am up to the challenge and I am convinced that I will get the chance and the opportunities, as Avram Grant was very positive about my qualities."

Sulejmani can operate as an out-an-out winger of a centre-forward, and became the Dutch record transfer when he signed for Ajax from Heerenveen for €16.25 million in 2008.

However, his first team opportunities have been limited - something the former Partizan man attributes to Godenzonen coach Martin Jol.

He said: "As Jol took over, my status changed and this is the biggest reason that I would like to change my environment."

Reports suggest that the Hammers will find out later this week whether or not Sujemani will be granted a work permit to allow him to play in England.
