Report: Leeds United and Sheffield Wednesday want West Ham misfit Jordan Hugill

The striker has only played three times for the Hammers.

Leeds United and Sheffield Wednesday are looking to land West Ham United misfit Jordan Hugill this summer, according to The Sun on Sunday (Print Edition, 23/06, Page 60).

The ex-Preston North End player scored seven goals and claimed two assists on loan at Middlesbrough last season.

Leeds are perhaps the most likely to land the player, with Wednesday probably needing to sell before they make too many additions to their ranks.

Hugill has played just three times for the Hammers since signing for £10 million back in January 2018.

Manuel Pellegrini has deemed the 27-year-old surplus to requirements and is set to offload him this summer.

 

The report does suggest that Leeds will only join the race if they lose one of their current strikers. Kemar Roofe was in fine form last season and some interest could be forthcoming in one of their star men.

TBR Verdict

Hugill would represent a solid addition to either the Leeds or Wednesday ranks.

Given the sizeable investment required to sign him, it looks likely that both interested parties will need to offload players first.

The 27-year-old will be on a decent wage at the London Stadium; whilst the Hammers will want to recoup a decent chunk of the £10 million they paid in 2018.

Leeds are a club on the up and playing under Marcelo Bielsa must be an attractive proposition for Hugill.
