OPINION

This is no surprise, in all honesty. You wouldn’t expect West Ham to have the option to recall Hugill before the winter transfer window, although there sometimes are exceptions. Even if they did, though, it’s doubtful that they would do it, simply because manager Manuel Pellegrini doesn’t really seem to fancy the Englishman. That is the cold hard truth at the end of the day, and that’s why the Chilean has sanctioned two successive loan spells for him. The form of Hugill, while extremely encouraging and gratifying for him personally, likely isn’t doing anything to make Pellegrini feel he made a mistake in giving him the boot. The only thing that could likely see Hugill recalled in January is if Hernandez leaves and then club record signing Sebastien Haller gets injured for a significant length of time. That would leave only new recruit Albian Ajeti and young forward as Pellegrini’s options in attack. So unless that happens, expect to see Hugill remain at QPR for the entirety of the campaign.
