That’s a 50% discount on the £30 million that Manchester United were demanding for Lingard in the summer (The Sun).

Much will depend on whether David Moyes is prepared to wait until the summer to sign Lingard for absolutely nothing.

Competition for his signature may well be fierce then, so perhaps the Hammers boss will move in for Jesse in January instead.

Lingard was absolutely brilliant at West Ham:
