Transfer business is continuing around West Ham and the coming weeks could see a number of departures from the London Stadium.
The Hammers are reportedly happy to offload Jordan Hugill after a disappointing few months with the east London side, who barely featured after moving to West Ham from Preston in January.
Championship duo Preston and QPR have been linked with loan moves for the 26-year-old striker but a third side has joined the pursuit, as The Sun reports Leeds United’s interest.
Signed for a reported £10m fee in January, Hugill is unlikely to be able to complete a permanent switch due to his current wages with the Hammers but a loan deal looks likely.
Hugill scored 23 league goals during a four-year stint at Preston, which included time on-loan at Hartlepool United and Tranmere Rovers, and has plenty of experience in England’s second-tier.
An exit suits all parties after the striker made just three Premier League appearances since his January transfer, all of which came off the bench.
