West Ham midfielder Haksabanovic: Pellegrini convinced me about Malaga move

West Ham midfielder Sead Haksabanovic is delighted with his loan move to Malaga.

The Swede has joined Malaga on a season-long deal after speaking with Hammers manager Manuel Pellegrini.

He said, "I did not know much about Málaga, I did know they have great fans and a great stadium, and it is a great place to live.

"Before coming, (Manuel) Pellegrini told me about Málaga and he told me that it would be very good here.

"I'm new here, but Spanish football is pretty similar to my way of playing. English football is very good, but I think I can adapt better to Spanish football."
