Cardiff City are set to sign Jordan Hugill on loan from Norwich City, with the striker’s spell at West Brom coming to an end early according to reports emerging fromt The Telegraph today.
Hugill has spent the first-half of the season on loan at West Brom, however the signings of Daryl Dike and Andy Carroll this January have left him further down the pecking order than he was already.
The 29-year-old has started only seven times in the Championship and scored one league goal in October’s 3-0 win over Bristol City.
Despite the struggle during his time with West Brom, Hugill has previous excelled at Championship level.
Between 2016 and 2018, he scored 20 league goals for Preston North End, earning himself a move to West Ham United.
However, he failed to make an impact in the Premier League and has had loans with Middlesbrough and QPR – who he struck 13 goals for in 2019/20 – before joining Norwich.
The striker scored four goals for the Canaries last season as they stormed to the Championship title and promotion back to the Premier League.
Cardiff, who are now managed by Steve Morison, have signed Cody Drameh on loan from Leeds United, as well as Tommy Doyle from Manchester City.
