My “gut feeling” led me to decide to sign with West Ham. – Mohammed Kudus

Ghana international Mohammed Kudus says the decision to join West Ham United from Ajax was purely based on his ‘gut feeling.’

The 23-year-old joined the Hammers in the summer after a brilliant season which was his best at the club. West Ham signed the Ghanaian in a deal worth £37m.

Prior to the decision to join West Ham, Kudus had attracted interest from Premier League rivals Arsenal, Brighton and Hove Albion and Chelsea.

However, the midfielder opted to sign for David Moyes’ side and he explained his decision in an interview with The Guardian.

“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 11 goals and 4 assists in 34 games for the Hammers across all competitions this season and will hope to that tally when West Ham play Newcastle United in the Premier League on Saturday.
