Transfer Flashback: Jordan Hugill to Middlesborough

Transfer Flashback: Jordan Hugill to Middlesborough - Transfer Flashbacks

The move hasn’t played out like the fairytale it seemed it could be, has it? In early August of the summer transfer window, it was announced that Jordan Hugill, a Middlesborough fan and former season ticket holder at the Riverside, would be joining Boro on a season-long loan from West Ham United.

Hugill came with a reputation of performing in the Championship, having been impressed with Preston North End, especially in his final 18 months at Deepdale.

The 26-year-old seemingly was not cut out for life in the Premier League as he was 0nly trusted to feature three times for the Hammers in the second half of last season, but the loan to Boro this campaign seemed a wise move given his links to the club and the need for more striking competition up top.

The loan deal got a lot of Boro fans excited.

However, some fans from opposing clubs were not as impressed by the deal. Patrick Bamford’s move to Leeds United meant Boro needed a replacement, Hugill was the chosen one and so some other fans took to Twitter to let their feelings be known.

Hugill has netted seven times across the season for Boro, but it is not the consistent form that Tony Pulis would have hoped for when he brought him in. Boro are still in need of an experienced, ever-reliable striker to help them on their way out of the Championship and, unfortunately for both parties, it does not seem like Hugill is that man.

A sour season after a move that must have tugged on heartstrings up on Teesside. A victim of Pulis-ball? Or just not very good? Probably a bit of both.
