West Ham will ‘definitely’ open talks to sign Manchester United ace Jesse Lingard on January 1st.

That’s according to Eurosport journalist Dean Jones, who made the claim when speaking on Touchline Talk on YouTube.

Lingard was a huge hit during a four-month loan spell at the London Stadium last season. He bagged nine goals and four assists in just 16 Premier League games for West Ham.

The 29-year-old returned to Old Trafford in the summer, however, in the hope of featuring regularly for Manchester United.

Unfortunately for him though, that didn’t happen under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. It remains unclear as to whether interim Man United boss Ralf Rangnick has Jesse in his plans but it’s fairly obvious to see that he has a far greater chance of playing regularly at West Ham than he does at Manchester United.

Surely Lingard would be open to the idea of returning the the London Stadium in January. It seems as though David Moyes is desperate to bring him back.

Respected Eurosport journalist Dean Jones told Touchline Talk on YouTube:

“I mean, they’re definitely going for Jesse. So, I was told the other day that as soon as the window’s open, they are going to reopen negotiations on Jesse Lingard and see what’s happening, because it looks like from afar that he’s not going to fit in under [Ralf] Rangnick. And it looks like he’s not going to sign a new contract.”

A move to sign Jesse Lingard seems fairly obvious in January.

The West Ham attackers have been firing blanks over the past four weeks. And it is clear to see just how much we have missed Jesse.

The 29-year-old will be desperate to force his way into Gareth Southgate’s England squad for the World Cup in Qatar next year.

 

It just makes perfect sense for Lingard to come back to the London Stadium next month.
