The Hammers signed Lingard on loan from Manchester United in January up until the end of the season.

And what an incredible signing the 28-year-old has proven to be.

Lingard has been rewarded for his fine form this season by earning a recall to the England national team squad ahead of next week’s international games.

Jesse has already established himself as a hugely important player for West Ham. It was obvious just how pivotal he is to the way in which the Hammers play when he was forced to miss our last game against Manchester United.

David Moyes lauds Jesse Lingard impact

The 28-year-old will be back to face Arsenal on Sunday and that’s a huge boost for West Ham.

Moyes told reporters today just how impressed he has been by Lingard since he moved to the London Stadium, as quoted by the club’s official website:

“Jesse has looked very good in training. His fitness and all-round game has been great since he’s come in, and his physical data is getting better too. He’s given us another string to our bow, so we’re really pleased with him.”

Lingard is clearly working hard both during games and on the training pitch.

He is such a popular figure at West Ham and David Moyes deserves so much credit for putting his neck on the line by signing him in January.

We now have to hope that the Hammers owners manage to wrap up a permanent deal for the 28-year-old in January.

The prospect of not having Lingard at the London Stadium next season doesn’t bear thinking about.
