According to The Mirror, four clubs are in the hunt for West Ham United fringe player Ashley Fletcher.

This report suggests that a trio of Championship clubs and newly promoted Huddersfield Town will battle it out to land Ashley Fletcher on a season long loan deal.

Ashley Fletcher found first team opportunities difficult to come by this season despite injuries to Andy Carroll and Diafra Sakho and the poor form of Simone Zaza and Jonathan Calleri.

A loan move for the 21-year-old could be the best option for both parties as Fletcher seeks to develop his game with regular playing time.

The towering centre forward has shown glimpses of his talent, speed and strength and notched his first goal for the Hammers – against former club Manchester United.

The former England youth international is a target for newly promoted Huddersfield Town as David Wagner seeks to boost his options for the Premier League.

Middlesbrough – who were recently relegated to the Championship – are also keen as they seek a replacement for Alvaro Negredo.

Fulham, who need to replace Chris Martin, and Norwich City, who are desperate to land a natural finisher, are also in the hunt for Ashley Fletcher, who may be let go if West Ham sign one or two new forwards.
