to join the Dutch side,

in the winter transfer window. Haller joined the Hammers back in 2019 but his career was not successful as expected. Even though he is not a West Ham player anymore, he is full of praise for his former teammate,

Declan Rice

.

The young English midfielder is the club’s captain at the moment. Rice who is now considered an international player is wanted by both Chelsea and Manchester United and his price tag is very high. Haller believes that Rice will become a world-class player in the future.

Haller, who left West Ham for Ajax in January, told 

talkSPORT

 of his former team-mate:

“He can definitely become a world-class player, I'm sure.

“He has everything. He's still really young, he's technically strong and a good captain.

“I can easily say that during my time at West Ham he was one of the two most important players in the team.

“The only thing I can wish is that he becomes a world-class player, because he has the potential.”
