Hammers look for fee as striker’s form improves

West Ham loanee Jordan Hugil’s improving form has given renewed hope the club will finally sell the David Moyes signing on in the summer.

Hugill – who inexplicably was brought in by the Scot for £10 million and failed to start a game – has been loaned out to his hometown club Middlesbrough and is finally starting to make an impact after a slow start.

The striker has now scored three times in the last three games as Boro have moved into third place in the Championship.

We understand the north eastern outfit have an option to buy attached to the loan and the Hammers also have payments due if the player helps Boro into the Premier League.

The Hammers will want a minimum of £6 million for the 26 year old should manager Tony Pulis decide to launch a bid for him.

Pulis commented on the player’s improved form recently and Hugill too has declared that he is now getting back to the sharpness he had before arriving at West Ham where he became virtually ignored.
