Former West Ham striker Alan Taylor has urged fans to get behind Jordan Hugill.
Many West Ham fans have questioned their deal for the former Preston North End striker.
But Taylor told whufc.com: “I'd be absolutely delighted if the lad gets his chance and scores a few goals.
“It'd be brilliant for Jordan Hugill and it'd be brilliant for the Club, too.
“That signing showed that West Ham are prepared to look around the lower divisions for youngsters.
“At Preston, Jordan showed his goalscoring instincts and now, with better players around him, I really hope that he gets a run and knocks a few in."
