Bristol City and QPR are claimed to among clubs offering Jordan Hugill a return to the Championship according to Lancaster Live but they say Preston North End have refuted a move for their former striker.
West Ham will let their striker who cost them £9.1m in January 2018 go for as cheap as £3m so they look to offload his £35,000 per week off their wage bill. The challenge is that Championship clubs don’t pay the same wages and Hugill is looking for the Hammers to fund the difference over the next three years,
This issue caused a deal with Wigan for £4m to collapse last week when he reportedly asked for a £2,5m bonus to fund the difference of the £18,000 per week he was offered by the Latics.
Questions are still being asked why former manager David Moyes signed Hugill from his former club for over £9m on such high wages.
West Ham still hopes to find a compromise with both the player and a championship club to allow the striker to carry on his career else where.
