Presenting the inside scoop on the latest Football League news

Leeds United’s interest in Premier League striker is real

Leeds United have a very real interest in West Ham United striker Jordan Hugill, and are looking to sign him on a season long loan deal according to a reliable journalist.

Alan Nixon of the Sun has confirmed on his twitter page that the Yorkshire club are interested in bringing Hugill to Elland Road, just six months after he left the Sky Bet Championship for the top flight.

He also confirmed that Queens Park Rangers are also interested in the 26-year-old, but that the decision on where he goes is up to both himself and West Ham United.

Leeds United fans may be worried that QPR could be his destination, as it is much closer to his current location and would be far easy for him and his family, however they will hold out hope that the appeal of working under Marcelo Bielsa can tempt Hugill to move to Yorkshire.

Hugill is considered surplus to requirements at West Ham United this summer. He was signed for £10 million by former boss David Moyes, but the Scottish manager has since left, and Hugill has fallen right down the pecking order.

After completing his move from Sky Bet Championship side Preston North End, Hugill failed to make any sort of real impact. He only made three appearances for the club, and all of those were substitutes, meaning that he only spent 22 minutes on the pitch in a West Ham United shirt.

Despite that, he has proved with Preston that he can perform in the second tier, and he could be an excellent loan signing for Leeds United.
