Simon Jordan has offered West Ham United some advice about potentially re-signing Jesse Lingard.

Jesse Lingard has been training with West Ham over the past month or so, amidst rumours that he will be offered a short-term deal by Hammers boss David Moyes.

As time goes on, it’s looking more and more likely that Lingard will be offered a deal at the London Stadium.

However, Jordan believes that West Ham offering him a new deal may well be a complete waste of time…

West Ham should avoid re-signing Jesse Lingard, Simon Jordan says

The talkSPORT pundit has delivered his verdict on a potential return to East London for the 30-year-old attacking midfielder.

And Jordan shared how something that he’s heard from the Nottingham Forest fans means that West Ham signing Jesse would be a waste of time:

“I spoke to Nottingham Forest fans last season who said he was an absolute waste of time. If I was the owner (of West Ham), if I was David Sullivan, you would have difficulty selling me Jesse Lingard. (Moyes) certainly got the best out of him last time. But there was a motivation because he wanted to get into the Euros side (for England). If it’s a pay-as-you-play deal, absolutely! Come on in Jesse!”

The last sentence from Jordan is key isn’t it.

If West Ham offer Jesse Lingard a heavily incentivised pay-as-you-play deal, then I think it will be well worth signing him.

For it to work, the 30-year-old needs to have the hunger – something that he clearly won’t have if he is offered a big money deal.

He’s obviously a very good player and on his day he could make a big difference for Moyes’s side.

Whether he has the mindset and the physical fitness to succeed with the Hammers remains to be seen though.
