Jordan Hugill could be set for the West Ham United exit door this summer, according to The Sun.

He only joined the Premier League side in January for £9 million from Preston North End but has struggled to make an impact at the London Stadium. David Moyes’ side are keen to offload him either by selling him or loaning him out.

This will put Championship clubs on red alert. He has been linked with teams such as Reading and Leeds United in the past and they could try and move in for him again this summer.

Jordan Hugill scored 13 goals in all competitions for Preston last season in the Championship and built upon that with 10 before January this season. His mind was set on leaving them as he handed in a transfer request last summer.

His rise to the Premier League has been impressive. He played for the likes of Consett, Whitby Town, Jerez Industrial and Marske United before moving to Port Vale in 2013. He was snapped up by Preston in June 2014 and turned out to be an inspired piece of business.

It will be interesting to see what happen with Hugill in the summer. Some might say that he has not been given enough time at West Ham and this is a fair argument. They did pay a lot for him and he has never played in the Premier League before.
