Transfer News: Jesse Lingard wanted on loan by West Ham United

Manchester United has been approached by West Ham over the possibility of signing Jesse Lingard on loan until the end of the season.

Lingard has yet to feature in any Premier League match this season and a move away would see the midfielder reunite with former United manager David Moyes.

Having triggered a one-year extension on Lingard’s contract, which allows the player to remain a United player for at least until the summer of 2022, Manchester United must decide whether to allow the 28-year-old leave before the transfer deadline on February 1.

West Ham already used up its chip for a maximum of two domestic loan signings which allowed them to get the service of Craig Dawson and Said Benrahma, so would need to make one of them permanent this month under Premier League rules.

The Hammers are exploring making Benrahma’s loan from Brentford permanent for £20m.

Last month, La Liga club Real Sociedad was reported to have had held initial talks over a possible loan deal, while French side Nice also held interest over a short-term deal until the end of the season.

Amad Diallo who joined Manchester United from Atalanta for £37m earlier this month has been touted to make his Premier League start soon and it seems as though that could cost Lingard even more.

Lingard’s representatives also held talks with several clubs in England and Europe in the summer, but a move did not materialize.

The United academy graduate, who didn’t make an appearance for United while Moyes was in charge during the 2013-14 season, scored four goals in 40 appearances across all competitions last season.

Lingard won the last of his 24 England caps during the UEFA Nations League Finals in June 2019.
