West Ham have confirmed that they have agreed a deal to sign Ajax forward Miralem Sulejmani on a season-long loan.
The Serbian international, who can play in the centre or as a winger, is set to move to Upton Park should a work permit be arranged for the player.
Sulejmani rose to stardom at Eredivisie side Heerenveen, scoring 15 goals in 34 games in the 2007-8 season and earned interest from some of Europes biggest clubs.
The 21-year-old joined Ajax in a record £13million deal in the summer of 2008, but failed to live up to his price tag, scoring just three goals in 25 appearances for Martin Jol's side last season.
"The club have agreed terms with Ajax and also with the Serbian international forward but the 21-year-old's move from Amsterdam to London is subject to a work permit hearing. West Ham United will make no further comment on this matter until the result of that hearing is known," a statement read on the club's official website.
