According to a report from Football London, West Ham may be willing to offload Jordan Hugill if they remain in the Premier League next season.

The striker was recruited in the January transfer window late on as the Hammers aimed to bolster the attacking options at David Moyes’ disposal for the rest of the season.

Hugill has been little more than a last resort option in the first-team for Moyes, however, and his future at West Ham seems unlikely.

It’s claimed by Football London that Hugill was signed by the club’s board as a contingency plan ahead of next season, solely in case they succumbed to relegation down to the Championship.

With West Ham edging closer to securing their Premier League status ahead of the 2018/19 campaign, though, it seems Hugill’s services will not be required beyond the summer transfer window.

An initial loan deal is likely for Hugill, who has not enjoyed success with West Ham since his move from Preston.
