QPR complete signing of Hugill on loan

QPR have confirmed the signing of Jordan Hugill on a season-long loan from West Ham. 

Several strikers have been linked with the R’s, but West London Sport recently revealed that Hugill, 27 was their target. 

He was lined up for a £1.1m move to Rangers from Preston in 2018 but interest from other clubs sparked an unexpected bidding war, which led to him eventually moving to east London in a deal worth around £8m.

He has been unable to make an impact at West Ham and has not started a match for the club.

After again being pursued by QPR, Hugill spent last season on loan at his hometown club Middlesbrough, making 37 Championship appearances – 17 of them as a substitute – and scoring six goals.

Hugill scored 23 league goals in 103 appearances for Preston, who signed him from Port Vale in 2014.
