“If it is West Ham and he’s going into a team that is playing with a lot of confidence, I can’t wait to see him without the pressure of United on his shoulders,” Wright said on Wrighty’s House Podcast.

“He’s going to play for a West Ham, if you do a couple of things right with West Ham those fans are fantastic. I only went there for a little while, but if they see you’re committed and you’re in.

“Remember, 28 in football especially with him, he’s not injury prone. We’re talking about somebody who is very fit with what he’s doing.

“The only thing that is missing from Jesse Lingard to get back where he is, remember he’s only 28, is confidence. His movement, his appreciation of the play, and the way he can play one-touch football is fantastic.”
