Norwich City set to recall Jordan Hugill from West Brom in January

West Brom appear set to lose the services of Jordan Hugill with Norwich City looking to recall him in January, according to The Sun on Sunday (05/12/21, pg. 59).

The 29-year-old moved to the Hawthorns in the summer on loan from the Canaries who are now exercising their option to recall him.

The Baggies are set to look for replacements are understood to be in the market for another striker.

Not a big deal

Hugill came into the club with plenty of hype, has failed to deliver and live up to the expectations on loan under Valerien Ismael.

In his 17 games played in the league, he’s managed to find the back of the net just once.

Ismael does not seem to rate him either, as he’s only handed him starts on five occasions all season.

Hugill, who was praised by Carlton Palmer in his early days (September 2021) at the club, has seen the hype fade away and a move back to Norwich may be better for both the Baggies as well as the player.

“From what I’ve heard, he’s absolutely fantastic in the dressing room,” the former Albion player told This Is Futbol.

“If you’ve got a player like Jordan in and around your squad, when he’s in the team, he comes in and does a great job.

“And if he’s not in the side, he’s not causing you a moment’s problem. He just gets on, trains hard and is great around the lads – good business.”

It’s clearly not been good business and the Baggies need to do much better with their next appointment.
