Hammers could hijack deal for Palace target

HugillWest Ham is rumoured to be having a look into hijacking a deal for Preston’s Jordan Hugill which Crystal Palace have been after for some time.

Preston North End striker Jordan Hugill was left out of their squad to face Nottingham Forest amid increasing interest from Crystal Palace.  The Eagles were reported have made a £8million move for the striker earlier on Tuesday, before Preston released a statement to the contrary.

It read: ‘Despite wholly inaccurate reports in a national newspaper this morning, we have not agreed any transfer fee with any club for Jordan Hugill.’

A tweet from the club said: ‘We can confirm Jordan Hugill was available for selection this evening, but given recent speculation regarding his future the manager decided a team fully focused on the game was what would be needed for the match.’ 

A bid of £10 million from the Hammers could seal a deal for the striker who Preston’s top goalscorer. Moyes previously managed Preston North End and is said to have many old friends there who could void for Hugill’s ability.

  1. 1 goals every 5 games in the championship. Time for this pair of 2 bob shyster spivs to f off if this is the level of singing they expect us to accpt


  3. 37% shot accuracy, he has scored some decent goals looks like a bit of a battering ram but definitely not prolific so I suspect he is one we mark as a desperation buy.

  4. 😂😂😂😂😂😂😂 omg

  5. Cue Sully’s press conference where he announces to the waiting media that ‘after extremely hard negotiations and working tirelessly for 24 hours a day, West Ham managed to land a young striker highly admired by several overseas clubs, including Cowes FC and Isle of Sheppey Utd’.

  6. How many times have I told you not to wind up the natives Sybil 😂😂😂

  7. Not sure if it is just me but these transfer windows must seem like golden windows for the distinctly average players agents when their clients are sold to desperate clubs in the PL just to avoid relegation.

  8. Is this preparation “for the next level ” in the championship 😁😁😁??

  9. League one 😂 Wigan guaranteed 6 points 😂😂!
    Laughing stock !! Lastminute.com !😎

  10. Preston’s best striker?? Well that’s a relief…..Sorry Preston, feel free to take the **** when you do the double over us next season. Everybody else will…do the double over us & take the **** yes that is what I meant.

    Surely this has to mean the money has dried up. Sorry to go on about this, but this is a side that was in the bottom three a few weeks ago & is riddled with injuries to its best playes. It has a positive inflow of cash over the window (a big inflow if Ayew goes) & doesn’t use it….what else can explain it. If we are picking up on this then so will the players & they will be planning their escape. Wish I could ….

    The Sky clock is ticking…
