Jesse Lingard is very likely to join West Ham United from Manchester United this month, according to a report from the Telegraph.

The Star broke the news that the Hammers had opened talks to sign the 28-year-old Red Devils ace at the start of the month.
ExWHUemployee then followed up those claims a few days later by suggesting that David Moyes loves the Man United star and would really like to bring him to the London Stadium.
Lingard, who earns around £85k-a-week (The Sun) is out of favour under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer at Old Trafford.
Jesse Lingard close to West Ham move?
His contract does not expire until the summer of 2022.
West Ham want to sign him according to a report from the Telegraph and it is now likely that the 24-capped England international will move to the London Stadium.
The Hammers allegedly could sign Lingard either on loan or on a permanent deal.
If we were to loan him, we would need to make one of our other loan signings permanent this month.
Some West Ham fans are unsure about the prospect of Lingard joining.
He has struggled badly for form and confidence over the past few years. The English ace has experienced family problems off the pitch as well, including having to look after his unwell mother and his younger bothers (Daily Mail).
A move away from Manchester united could be just what he needs in order to reinvigorate his career. And West Ham may be the ideal club for him to do just that.
David Moyes has got the best out of every single player he has brought to the London Stadium.
So we need to trust the Scot. If Lingard is signed, let’s get behind him 100 per cent.
