New Hugill move on the cards

Hammers misfit Jordan Hugill is being lined up for a loan move to an unnamed club but at a cost!

Having already turned down the chance of a switch to Wigan Athletic the striker is now apparently being left with the latest loan option to consider.

He rejected the chance of a move to Wigan because it would have involved a cut in wages and his request for a £2 million pay off was then snubbed by the Hammers.

But the club have refused to give up on  David Moyes’ £8 million signing and he could now be on his way for another year-long loan deal after his spell at Middlesbrough last season failed to result in a permanent deal.

After the possible deal was tweeted by ExWHUemployee, ClaretandHugh learned the Hammers will miss out on losing the player’s entire wage costs.

We understand from a top Hammers insider by email the interested club only want to pay 60 per cent of his reported £33k he is receiving at the London Stadium.

The unamed club has been reported as QPR but there has been other interest from other Championship clubs such as West Brom and Derby.

  1. That’s what happens when clubs employ and they will continue to employ the likes of Moyes, BFS ,Bruce, (watch this space ) McLaren and the like .

  2. Unnamed but the whole football world knows that it is QPR !

  3. I can’t believe some of these blokes,who does he think he is? He very fortunately, got picked up from a Championship club by a desperate David Moyes (can’t imagine what he saw in this guy,not exactly a prolific goalscorer,even for Preston.We backed away from a player who was better than him.As expected he was never going to be good enough for the Premiership,he’s proved that and now he wants a £2m pay off to leave the club and it’s,again,only championship clubs that are interested.In most cases people get paid what they’re worth.In Hugill’s case obviously not alot.I say leave him where he is,pay him his outrageous £35,000 a week,don’t select him for any West Ham team and see how long he takes that for.

  4. It was one of the oddest deals in history when we signed him, not far short of Savio Nsereko which has to be the oddest of all. His shooting accuracy was among the worst in the championship and none of his stats suggested a prem player yet we paid a ridiculous fee for him. I don’t blame him for staying put, he is on a deal unlikely to be bettered so for financial security into his retirement he is doing the sensible thing.

    • Fully agree, in his head he thought he was to become a premiership footballer. He’s hardly been given a chance and it’s not his thought the club is over paying what his ability is worth. Pay off the money he’s owed and get rid, the lad plays football to his standard and we have a little more to play with in the transfer market.
