Hammers duo confirmed for sale

Both Jordan Hugill and Sam Byram have been available for sale this summer but the club have received no offers for a permanent transfer for either player so far.

Hugill joined the Hammers from Preston North End under David Moyes in January this year for a transfer fee which rose to £10.2m but has failed to realise his potential.

Sam Byram joined from Leeds in January 2016 under Slaven Bilic in a deal worth £4.3m but has also failed to make an impact after being dogged by injuries.  Byram has dropped down the right back pecking after the signing of Ryan Fredericks this summer and Pablo Zabaleta last season.

The club have received a number of loan offers from Championship clubs for both of the players but would prefer to sell.

Hugill has been linked with a loan deal to Leeds, QPR while Byram has been linked to a loan to either Nottingham Forest and Leeds.

A club insider confirmed: “Both Hugil and Byram are for sale, numerous clubs want to loan, but no buyers so far”

  1. It’s a shame for both players – Hugill never got a chance, and Byram was promising but for his run of injuries. Wish them both well, but it’s time to move on for both parties.

  2. I feel more sorry for Hugill because he never got a real chance. Byran had plenty of chances but he was not ready to perform at this level. I said at the time we should never have bought him and that is still the case today. I have completed my list of outs, it comprises of 10 players as follows:- Reid or Ogbanna, Cresswell, Byran, Oxford, Snodgrass, Fernandez, Cullen, Hugill, Carroll or Hernandez. If we got on average 5m for each then we would have 45 million and I would bring in 4 players as follows Yilna (Columbia CH), Laxalt (left back), Alviron (Paraguay mid), and a forward (Iran lad looked good in world cup). If we did this I would say we would have a minimum top 8 squad.

  3. It’s been well advertised we have spent a lot of money on an overdraft and now are desperate to sell in order to balance the books. Clubs will probably wait until closer to the transfer window now, knowing the longer they leave it the more desperate we will be to sell off our unwanted players. Some championship clubs could get a real bargain or two.

  4. Talk about feeling sorry for Hugill, it’s a bit embarrassing that the club is getting him to sell himself in a video on the official club website.
