Exclusive: West Ham ready to sell in-form attacker in January
West Ham are ready to sell Jordan Hugill in January despite his blitz of loan goals this season, Football Insider has learned.
The 27-year-old was loaned out to QPR for the full campaign after failing to win over Manuel Pellegrini since he took over as manager in the summer of 2018.
A West Ham source has told Football Insider that the club will listen to offers for him in the winter window regardless of him lighting up the Championship.
Hugill does not figure in Pellegrini’s plans and the Hammers have no intention of recalling him mid-loan in the winter window.
It is likely he will be sold at the end of the season if a deal cannot be done in January.
Hugill is certainly likely to be of interest to Championship clubs who will have noted his impressive form for Rangers, where his nine league starts have yielded six goals.

He has a contract at the Hammers that runs until the summer of 2022 after he was signed from Preston North End for £10million in January of last year.
Hugill has made just three senior appearances for West Ham and could not even get a game when David Moyes, the man who signed him from his former club Preston, was in charge.
He spent last season on loan at Middlesbrough, netting seven times from 41 matches in all competitions.
