Lingard has an incredible eight goals and three assists to his name in just nine games for the east London outfit so far.

David Moyes deserves great credit for having the foresight to bring Jesse to the London Stadium.

The Hammers fans will now be desperate for the 28-year-old to be signed on a permanent deal in the summer.

Roy Keane a big fan of Jesse Lingard

The 26-capped England international has been the best player in the Premier League since moving to east London on loan just under three months ago.

“Credit to West Ham and Jesse Lingard. They’ve been outstanding. What I give Jesse credit for, he turned up at West Ham having not played much football for Manchester United. He’s obviously kept himself in good shape, he’s a good pro. He had a difficult spell at United, maybe took his eye off the ball. But he’s always been a talented boy. He looks focused, he looks hungry. He always had that talent. And it’s great to see it.”

Praise from Roy Keane is really not easy to come by! So his comments yesterday will mean a lot to Jesse.

David Moyes must make it his absolute priority to sign Lingard permanently in the summer.

It is hard to imagine him not being a West Ham player now! He is clearly loving life in east London.

Let’s just hope that the Hammers owners are prepared to dig deep because Jesse’s value is rising by the week!
