West Ham United Ace Completes Loan Move To The Championship: Good Move By Pellegrini?

West Ham United have confirmed on their official website that English forward Jordan Hugill has completed a season-long loan move to Queens Park Rangers. The East London outfit have announced that Hugill will return to the EFL Championship once again but this time to play for QPR for the entire 2019-20 campaign.

Hugill’s Underwhelming Career In English Football

Since arriving at the London Stadium from Preston North End at the start of 2018, the English frontman has only managed to feature in three matches for the Hammers. Also, he is yet to open his goal-scoring account for the London side thus far. He has failed to impress Manuel Pellegrini which explains why the West Ham boss has decided to send him out on loan for this upcoming campaign.

The 27-year-old has a wealth of experience in the lower leagues of English football having played for clubs such as Preston North End, Middlesbrough and Port Vale, to name a few. Hugill has made a total of 137 appearances in the EFL Championship so far, scoring 29 goals while grabbing six assists in the process.

The English talent had a fruitful season at Middlesbrough last season after he managed to put in a few goal-scoring displays for them in the second tier of England. He featured in 42 matches for Boro, finding the back of the net on seven occasions while earning two assists across all competitions.

Did Pellegrini Make The Right Call By Sending Hugill Out On Loan?

The fact remains that Hugill doesn’t have the proven track record to play in the Premier League regularly. Thus, it was a good decision by the Hammers to send him out on loan again this summer. At 27, the English striker has failed to score goals consistently in the Championship.

However, he will now have a golden chance to resurrect his career at QPR next season if given enough first-team opportunities to prove his worth at Loftus Road.

Hugill’s departure on loan won’t affect Manuel Pellegrini’s first-team plans at all especially after the arrival of Sébastien Haller earlier this summer. Thus, Hugill’s temporary switch to QPR could turn out to be a good move for all parties.
