West Ham winger Nathan Holland reportedly set for loan move, Owls wanted him in 2020

According to a report by ExWHUemployee via Hammers News, reported Sheffield Wednesday target Nathan Holland is set to leave the club on loan with Hull City keen.

The talented Hammers winger has recently returned from a lengthy layoff.

Prior to his injury, Holland was impressing for the West Ham U23 side and later Oxford United in League One before missing the rest of the 2019/20 campaign.

Football Insider claimed Sheffield Wednesday wanted him in the summer.

Then manager Garry Monk had reportedly monitored his progress ahead of an Owls approach during the summer, but his injury scuppered plans of a move.

Now, Holland is back fit and seemingly set for another loan away from West Ham.

ExWHUemployee claims Hull and Oxford are keen, with Hammers News quoting:

“I think we’ll see some youngsters go out on loan in the next few days. Nathan Holland is one. I mentioned it on the show last week, Hull and Oxford are leading the way. I still believe they’re the two who are in the mix. I believe it’s Hull who are more likely east the moment, but he’s still fond of Oxford”

Wednesday are still manager-less after the dismissal of Tony Pulis a few weeks ago.

Pulis made no secret of his desire to improve Wednesday’s squad in January. A new striker and wide players were high on the agenda to fix a lack of creativity.

Andre Green has since signed on a free transfer. But there is still scope to bring in another creative player and Holland would represent a decent shot-term loan option.

The former England U19 international is quick, direct and loves to run at fullbacks. He posted 11 goals and six assists in 12 Premier League 2 (U23) games last season.
