West Ham signing Sebastien Haller: Ligue 1 never an option

West Ham signing Sebastien Haller says a return to France was never considered this summer.

Haller left Eintracht Frankfurt for the Hammers last week in a €50m deal.

And speaking with L'Equipe, the centre-forward says Ligue 1 was never an option.

"Possible, yes, conceivable, not at all. I did not want to come back to France as there was nothing for me," he stated.

"What was offered to me was not good for me."
