Jordan Hugill has joined Middlesbrough on a season-long loan from West Ham.

The 26-year-old only signed for West Ham in the January window in a £9.5million deal from Championship side Preston North End.

However, Hugill featured for the Hammers on just three occasions and failed to score for the London club.

In a bid to get more game time this season the forward, born in Middlesbrough has sealed a move to Boro on loan for the season and will join up with the rest of the squad in training on Thursday.
