West Ham’s summer activity in the transfer market so far has largely orientated around new signings, though that could change in the coming weeks.

After spending heavily to land eight new faces at the London Stadium, exits are likely as Manuel Pellegrini looks to balance the books in east London.

January addition Jordan Hugill is one of those linked with an exit, after featuring in just 22 minutes of Premier League football last term, and a number of Championship clubs are interested in a loan deal.

Football.London reports that one of the second-tier sides still keen on the services of former Preston man Hugill is QPR – despite numerous links suggesting a loan deal taking Hugill to Leeds United is close.

However, the injury setback sustained by Andy Carroll last week means that West Ham lack recognised strikers within the first-team squad and Hugill’s future may hinge on whether a new signing in this area can be secured.
