A loan move for Jordan Hugill at Leeds makes sense for club and player

Leeds United are interested in signing West Ham striker Jordan Hugill on loan for next season according to The Yorkshire Evening Post.

What’s the story?

The 26-year-old only joined West Ham from Preston North End in January on a deadline day move, but was restricted to only three substitute appearances for the Hammers, playing 22 minutes in total.

The target man is valued at £7.2million on Transfermarkt and according to the report Leeds are interested in signing him on loan for the season ahead.

An astute move for Bielsa

With Leeds reportedly looking at a number of strikers with big fees being bandied about for the likes of Matej Vydra, Abel Hernandez and Jerry Mbakogu, so a loan move would make sense for the club financially.

Hugill has proved himself in the Championship after scoring 20 goals in the 18 months before he made his move to the top-flight.

He’s had a tough time of it so far and will want to prove himself and play regular football so this would be a smart move for both him and Leeds.
