The 28-year-old joined the Hammers from Manchester on loan until the end of the season last month.

And Lingard has already made a huge impact at the London Stadium.

The 24-capped England international’s quality, energy and composure in possession has improved West Ham’s attacking play no end.

He has three goals and one assist to his name in five games for the Hammers so far.

With so much attacking talent on display at Old Trafford, it is surely unlikely that Lingard has much of a future at Manchester United.

Joe Cole urges West Ham to sign Jesse Lingard permanently

The Hammers will surely try to turn the 28-year-old’s loan deal to a permanent one in the summer.

Joe Cole urged West Ham to do exactly that at the end of the season, when speaking on BT Sport (Saturday, February 27th, 12:04 pm):

“I’ve always been a fan of Jesse but he’s lost his way in the last couple of years. He’s found a club where they will love him with his hustle and bustle and quality. David Moyes will be looking at him thinking I can get him back to his best. He hasn’t actually played that many games so he might not even be at his peak now. He’s at the right club. He’ll do his job and that will make West Ham want to buy him. If you’re going to be serious now, you’ve got a player who can do a job for you, get the deals done, get him in and it will be great for Jesse as well.”

If Lingard keeps his current form up until he end of the season, signing him permanently will be a no-brainer for West Ham.

The 28-year-old has already proven that he has more than enough quality to make a huge difference for the Hammers at this stage off our development under David Moyes.

Let’s hope that we see Jesse in a West Ham shirt for many more years to come.
