Jesse Lingard could be heading back to West Ham from Manchester United in January.
The Mirror claims that the 28-year-old Manchester United ace is a January transfer target for Hammers boss David Moyes and is expected to cost around £15 million.
Jesse spent a wonderfully successful four-month loan spell at the London Stadium last season, bagging nine goals and four assists in 16 Premier League games for West Ham.
Lingard left the Hammers to rejoin Manchester United in the summer.
Having not been given regular football by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, however, he could be set for an exit from Old Trafford again.
A return to West Ham could well be on the cards.
Jesse Lingard could be heading back to West Ham
Most Hammers fans would be delighted to see the 28-year-old back at the London Stadium.
And one fan thinks it’s almost a dead cert after Jesse posted this picture to his Instagram account last night:
West Ham Transfers responded:
Now, he may well have been talking with his tongue firmly in cheek.
But if he wasn’t then he needs a reality check! Come on…that really is stretching it…
We think there is a good chance Lingard will come back to West Ham. But a picture of a pumpkin vaguely painted in Claret and Blue colours doesn’t prove anything.
Moyes needs to bring Jesse back in January. We were a different team when he was in the side.
Lingard clearly loves West Ham – he proved that with his comments last week.
It will just depend on whether we can beat the likes of Newcastle to his signature in January.
