Jesse Lingard pledged his allegiance to West Ham and Declan Rice in particular this afternoon.
The 28-year-old was watching the England game against Croatia and he posted the below picture on to his Instagram account:
Lingard joined the Hammers on loan from Manchester United in the January transfer window.
The 28-capped England international was in absolutely sensational form for West Ham and managed to rack up nine goals and four assists in just 16 Premier League games (Who Scored).
David Moyes will be desperate to get a deal to sign Jesse permanently from Man United wrapped up before the start of the new season.
Whether West Ham will actually be able to do that remains to be seen. One thing’s for sure though – the 28-year-old clearly absolutely loved his time at the London Stadium.
He was the main man at West Ham alongside Declan Rice.
Jesse Lingard will surely join West Ham if it’s up to him
The picture posted above by Jesse is a clear message. Surely he wouldn’t be posting that if he didn’t want to join the Hammers this summer.
Signing the 28-year-old on a permanent deal will be vitally important for West Ham this summer.
He was so vital to the way in which we went about our business during the second half of last season.
Whether Man United will play ball, however, remains to be seen.
