“I made the decision based on my gut feeling” – Kudus on West Ham move

Mohammed Kudus, the Ghanaian international, has revealed that his decision to join West Ham United from Ajax was purely based on his ‘gut feeling.’

The 23-year-old midfielder made the move to the Hammers in the summer after an impressive season with Ajax, which was considered his best at the club. West Ham secured the signing of Kudus in a deal worth £37m.

Despite interest from Premier League rivals such as Arsenal, Brighton and Hove Albion, and Chelsea, Kudus opted to join David Moyes’ side. He explained his decision in an interview with The Guardian, citing his intuition as the driving force behind his choice.

“I was ready to make that step after the season I had at Ajax,” said Kudus. “I’m a player who doesn’t want to be in my comfort zone. I could have stayed at Ajax. I knew the league, I knew the club. But I don’t want to be complacent and comfortable. I always want to challenge myself.

“All the clubs you mentioned, it’s true they were in contact. But when West Ham came it moved fast and I made my decision based on speaking to people around the club, their project and how they see me as a player.

“I made the decision based on my gut feeling. That’s how I make my decisions. Whatever the ramifications are, I take it upon myself.”

Kudus has been in fine form for the Hammers this season, notching up 11 goals and 4 assists in 34 games across all competitions. He will be looking to add to that tally when West Ham faces Newcastle United in the Premier League on Saturday.
