Jesse Lingard reportedly wants West Ham return

Jesse Lingard allegedly wants to return to West Ham from Manchester United in the January transfer window.

That’s according to a report from ESPN who claims that the 29-year-old Manchester United star is hoping that the Hammers make a move to sign him this month.

Man United will only consider a permanent bid for Lingard, however, according to ESPN.

The 32-capped England international spent the second-half of last season on loan with West Ham and he absolutely thrived at the London Stadium.

Lingard bagged nine goals and four assists in 16 Premier League games for the Hammers. The West Ham fans loved Jesse and David Moyes and the Hammers players did as well.

Mark Noble spoke to the Daily Mail in the summer and labelled Lingard as ‘phenomenal’. It seems as though the 29-year-old loved his time in East London as well.

Jesse Lingard wants West Ham return

According to ESPN, Newcastle are chasing the 29-year-old’s signature.

Lingard is allegedly hoping that the Hammers make a move to sign him, however.

The attacking midfielder is out of contract at Old Trafford in the summer so Manchester United would obviously prefer to sell him outright now rather than lose him for nothing in five month’s time.

The Sun claims that Man United are demanding as much as £10 million for Jesse though. That’s an awful lot of money to be paying out for someone who will be a free agent in the summer.

Newcastle won’t baulk at that kind of fee with their new-found wealth. So West Ham will have to match the Toon if Moyes really does want to bring Lingard back to the London Stadium.

Lingard made a huge difference for West Ham last season. And he would surely have a similar impact this time around.

Whilst £10 million sounds like a lot of money for a player soon to be out of contract, it’s not a lot of money for someone with the 29-year-old Manchester United ace’s quality.

If he is available and genuinely wants to come back to East London, West Ham should not hesitate to get this one done.
