West Ham are set to capture Serbian forward Miralem Sulejmani after confirming a loan deal has been agreed with Ajax.

The mercurial 21-year-old has agreed terms with the Hammers and will join subject to a work permit being received. West Ham have not confirmed the length of the deal, which is thought to be for the upcoming season.

A club statement said: "West Ham can confirm the club have reached agreement with AFC Ajax over the loan transfer of Miralem Sulejmani."

It continued: "The club have agreed terms with Ajax and also with the Serbian international forward but the 21-year-old's move from Amsterdam to London is subject to a work permit hearing. West Ham United will make no further comment on this matter until the result of that hearing is known."

Ajax spent a record £13million on Sulejmani to take him to Amsterdam from Heerenveen in 2008.

However, the hugely talented youngster, who can play off a striker or on the wing, failed to deliver on his potential and was criticised for his performances throughout his spell with the club.

Despite once being among Serbia's great hopes for the national team, Sulejmani missed out on a World Cup place while finding himself out in the cold in Amsterdam.
