Jordan Hugill's time at West Ham United looks to be coming to an end before it even really started, with the Mirror reporting the striker is not in new manager Manuel Pellegrini's plans.
As a result Hugill could leave the London Stadium on loan and QPR are already considering making a move for the unwanted Hammers man.
A return to the Championship for the former Preston North End forward seems the most likely outcome, but the 26-year-old's high wages at West Ham make a permanent deal unrealistic for most clubs in the division.
Should Leeds renew interest?
Leeds United were keen on signing Hugill themselves during the January transfer window, but did not want to meet Preston's valuation of £8m plus - according to the Yorkshire Evening Post.
In the end the attacker moved in East London in a £10m (BBC) deal, signing a four-and-a-half year deal with the Premier League club.
So while a permanent deal for Hugill was deemed too expensive and lacking value in January, the Whites could now potentially land their former target on a far less risky loan deal that, if successful, could perhaps be made permanent in the future.
