"I feel really great," Haller told whufc.com.

“I think it's a really good opportunity for me to be here.

"It means a lot (to be record signing). It proves that the club (has) really wanted me for a long time. I felt this desire to sign me and I'm really happy to sign, also. it is an ambitious club, a nice club, a nice city and nice fans too.

"For me I can guarantee that I will give 100% for the club because the club has given me this confidence and I will try to give it back every day in every game.

"I will always give 100% and respect the club. I think this is a normal thing and that I can guarantee. I know it's a big transfer and there is a lot of expectation around me, and I just want to make people proud of this transfer and I will give everything I have."
