WEST Ham United midfielder Sead Haksabanovic has joined Malaga on a season-long loan deal.

The 19-year-old moved to the London Stadium from Halmstad last year, but has largely been used at youth-level by the Hammers.

He made two senior appearances, one in the Carabao Cup and one in the FA Cup, but will now spend a year with Spanish Segunda Division outfit Malaga.

Haksabanovic, a Montenegro international, had a trial at Manchester United while coming through the ranks at Swedish side Halmstad.

He also played for Sweden's under-19s before opting to represent Montenegro at senior level.
