Huddersfield eye move for West Ham striker

Fletch1Huddersfield boss David Wagner wants to sign West Ham striker Ashley Fletcher on a season-long loan according to John Cross from the Daily Mirror

The newly-promoted Yorkshire club have already made an enquiry to see whether West Ham would allow the former Manchester United starlet join them. Wagner is hoping Fletcher could be his first signing as he looks to bolster his Championship play-offs-winning squad on a budget.

21-year-old Fletcher was given limited opportunities under West Ham boss Slaven Bilic in the recently-ended campaign after a free-agent move from Old Trafford.

 Huddersfield tried to sign Fletcher before he ever went to the Hammers and also made a loan enquiry in January, so they are clearly keen.  Championship trio Fulham, Middlesbrough and Norwich are all interested in loaning him too, and hope West Ham might let him go out for a season to get more first team experience under his belt.

  1. I’m all for this….
    He will get more premier league experience…
    and could end up blossoming with the right game time.
    I do feel he should’ve been given more of a chance than calleri…
    But this can be his chance.

  2. Agree mate, he would have a good crack at playing regularly and gain prem experience, Wagner also seems a pretty smart coach, to get huddersfield out of that division on a shoestring, another coach that did it by making the players train twice a day and that is in a league where they play twice a week many weeks. Hopefully ours will be getting that treatment next season.
