Dean Windass has exclusively told Football FanCast that West Ham won’t sign Jesse Lingard permanently next season.
Lingard has been in outstanding form for the Hammers following his January loan from Manchester United, scoring nine goals in 11 matches, whilst laying on four assists.
His heroics have put West Ham in contention to qualify for the Champions League for the first time, leading to reports that David Moyes’ side want to bring the England attacker back to the London Stadium on a permanent basis.
And whilst Windass admires Lingard’s turnaround, having been left out in the cold by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, he doesn’t believe he’ll be back in east London.
He told Football FanCast:
“I can’t see him being at West Ham next year, that’s a fact. Will he get in Man United’s team next year? He’s got another year left.
“I admire the kid, he’s been out in the cold, he’s had a few personal problems, he’s kept himself fit.
“He’s took West Ham to the next level. Would I be saying as a player ‘I am too good for this team?’ He probably is, and he’s proved it, so he won’t be there at West Ham.”
