Hugill to be first out the door


Striker Jordan Hugill will be the first on the chopping block at West Ham this summer as the club seek bids for the 25-year-old, according to Claret and Hugh. 

The Hammers news website, which is a well-established source for exclusive club information, report that Hugill will leave the club as long as a realistic bid is tabled.

Claret and Hugh claim that Hugill looks set to return to the Championship after his move from Preston North End in January, but as of yet there have been no enquiries fielded.

Good move for West Ham?

It is pretty hard to say.

Hugill’s arrival in January, for a fee of £10million, was one met with caution by Hammers fans, with many never having heard of the big striker.

His move has turned out to be an unsuccessful one for both club and player, with the forward making just three substitute appearances for the Irons since his arrival.

There is most likely a reason why Hugill has been used so sparingly, but it seems slightly bizarre that he will be leaving the club without being given a sniff of a chance to impress.

Forever West Ham rating: 5/10

Likely to happen?

Claret and Hugh are one of the most reliable Hammers sites out there, and so yes, this exit does look likely.

In all honesty, many Hammers fans would not need to be told that a Hugill exit is on the cards, with his lack of minutes a clear indication of his poor position in the squad.
