West Ham fans took to social media on Wednesday to share their anger at the club potentially signing Jordan Hugill from Preston North End.

Simon Stone of the BBC shared on his personal Twitter account that the Hammers had agreed a fee with the Championship club for the centre-forward.

The reliable journalist also shared that the player was on his way to London.

The Sun previously reported that Crystal Palace were likely to sign Hugill after agreeing a £8million fee for him on Tuesday, however the Hammers look like they’ve successfully hijacked the move.

The 25-year-old has scored eight goals and grabbed two assists in his 27 league appearances for Preston this season.

Hugill has never played in the Premier League before, but has scored 31 goals in 137 games played across the Championship, League One and League Two.

Hugill’s goal return didn’t inspire West Ham fans that he was the player they should be signing, with many moaning about the player’s potential arrival.

One supporter said it was an absolute joke to sign someone that had scored 30 goals in five years in the lower leagues, while another fan believed David Sullivan was trying to ruin the club by buying Hugill.

Here are the best tweets from angry West Ham fans over the potential arrival of Hugill:
