West Ham are ready to sell striker, Jordan Hugill, despite the 27-year-old being in brilliant form on loan at QPR in the Championship.
The striker joined the Hammers from Preston in January of last year, but has failed to make an impact at the Premier League club and has severely fallen down the pecking order in Manuel Pellegrini’s plans for the future.
Hugill has been playing at QPR this season on loan, and has been in terrific form since joining the R’s. He’s formed a brilliant partnership with Nahki Wells and has already scored six goals for Mark Warburton’s side.
According to Football Insider, the Hammers are now ready to get rid, and that could be the case as soon as January. Unfortunately, Hugill has made just three senior appearances for West Ham and couldn’t even earn a place in the team under the manager that bought him to the club, David Moyes.
He’s likely to be high on many Championship clubs’ transfer wish list, and it’s no surprise after the excellent statistics that he boasts in the division.
It never really worked out for Hugill in the Premier League, but I’m sure he doesn’t regret it as it’s such a tough opportunity to turn down.
Having been on loan at Middlesbrough last season, and now QPR this time round, he’ll be determined to find a club that he can make home once more just like he did in his time at Preston.
He has an excellent record at Championship level, and he’d be a good signing for pretty much every side in the division.
Before his move to West Ham, clubs such as Reading and Leeds were linked with the forward so it’ll be interesting to see if any of those sides reignite their interest in the forward and look to bring him to their clubs.
