According to a report from Claret and Hugh, Jordan Hugill is unlikely to be sold by West Ham in January, due to his £32,000 wages.
The 27-year-old joined the Hammers from Preston North End in January 2018, for a fee believed to be worth £10 million, according to Football.London.
He endured a miserable spell in east London, however, making just three appearances and failing to score a single goal.
Hugill was farmed out to Middlesbrough on loan for the 2018/19 season.
He returned to West Ham this summer just gone, before leaving on loan again, this time to link up with Queens Park Rangers.
Football Insider claimed yesterday that the Hammers will try to move the 27-year-old on permanently during the January transfer window.
Claret and Hugh have refuted that suggestion, however. They claim that senior sources at West Ham have told them that the club are not expecting anyone to sign the striker permanently, mostly due to his £32,000 per week wages.
Should the Hammers receive an offer for Hugill, however, they will surely decide to sell him.
He clearly has no future at the London Stadium, and if West Ham can’t sell him, it might just be a case of loaning him out until his contract expires.
