Newcastle: Jesse Lingard wants Magpies move

Newcastle United have been handed a golden opportunity to sign Manchester United’s Jesse Lingard this summer…

What’s the talk?

According to The Sun, the midfielder is keen on a switch to St. James’ Park this summer because of his desire to remain up north and near his family.

They quote a source as saying: “Jesse hasn’t been happy this season.

“He feels let down that he hasn’t played as much as he wanted and feels promises made to him when he came back from West Ham haven’t been kept.

“Jesse likes the look of Eddie Howe and a move to Newcastle would give him the chance to stay closer to his family in the North West, which is important to him.”

Gazza 2.0 for Eddie Howe

He can be Paul Gascoigne 2.0 for Newcastle under Howe as he has the bright personality and attacking quality to be a major player for the club moving forward.

Should Newcastle sign Lingard?





The retired England international enjoyed a fantastic time with the Magpies as he scored 20 goals in 94 appearances during his spell on Tyneside and found the back of the net 10 times in 57 caps for his country throughout his career.

In £18m-rated Lingard, the Toon can find another attacking midfielder with the quality to score goals. He was lauded as “absolutely phenomenal” by talkSPORT pundit Adrian Durham and that is what he has the potential to be for Newcastle with his goalscoring talent. 

Last season, the £80k-per-week gem managed nine goals and five assists in 16 games on loan to West Ham and he has scored 35 times throughout his time at Old Trafford. He has also scored six goals in 32 caps for England as he has shown that he has the ability to make an impact in the final third at the top level – in a similar vein to the retired Spurs and Newcastle legend.

Who cost Newcastle the most?

The similarities do not stop there, though, as The Express previously compared their enthusiastic personalities, with both players being animated in and outside of the dressing room for club and country. This shows that Lingard has the mentality to be a star man for the Magpies as he has the personality to endear himself to the supporters, much like Gascoigne did.

Therefore, PIF must pounce on this golden opportunity to sign Lingard this summer as he would be an excellent addition to Howe’s squad.
