Middlesbrough have enjoyed an interesting summer on the transfer front, bringing in some shrewd signings, including Paddy McNair and Aden Flint.
Fans of Tony Pulis' side will be hopeful that the former Stoke City manager has done enough business to propel them back to the Premier League.
One of those signings is Jordan Hugill, who has joined on a season-long loan from West Ham United and fans on Teesside have taken to social media to react to the news.
The Middlesbrough-born man only made three appearances for the Premier League side, after joining the Hammers from Preston North End in 2018.
However, despite failing to break into the first-team at the London-based side, Hugill certainly joins Middlesbrough with some expectation after his successful four-year-stint with the Lilywhites.
Hugill scored 23 goals in 103 appearances for Preston and previously scored a hat full of goals in his loan spell at Gateshead and Port Vale.
Pulis' signing of the 26-year-old is a shrewd one and Hugill will certainly bolster the striking options available for the 60-year-old, with Britt Assombalonga the only forward making a case for a place in the team as of late.
Hugill was a relatively late comer to the professional game, having had spells with non-league sides Seaham Red Star, Whitby Town and Consett, but signed for Port Vale in 2013.
However, despite his career having only been short up to now, Hugill will be hoping to hit the ground running with his boyhood club and will look to cement a place in his manager's side.
Here is the best of the reaction to the news...
