West Ham United have reportedly held initial talks to sign Jesse Lingard on a free transfer.

According to Sky Sports reporter Dharmesh Sheth, West Ham have opened talks with the representatives of Jesse Lingard about a short-term deal at the London Stadium.

The summer transfer window has already proven to be an excellent one for Hammers boss David Moyes. But the Scot is clearly not finished in the market yet.

Lingard recently made it very clear that he wants to rejoin West Ham this summer.

And now it seems as though a deal is very likely to happen…

West Ham appear to be on the verge of signing attacker on a free transfer

Dharmesh Sheth reckons that the Hammers are in talks to bring Jesse back to the London Stadium.

The Sky Sports reporter tweeted:

The ex-Manchester United man spent four months on loan with the Hammers during the 2020/21 season, and was a hugely important player for David Moyes.

He bagged nine goals in just 16 Premier League games.

However, when that season finished he returned to Manchester United and spent most of the campaign warming the bench.

West Ham were then heavily linked with the 30-year-old once again in the summer of 2022, but he chose to join Nottingham Forest instead after incessantly flirting with the idea of a Hammers return on social media.

It seems as though Lingard is now set to re-sign for West Ham on a free transfer though. If nothing else, he will be a very good option off the bench for Moyes to utilise.
