Jesse Lingard requests West Ham return this January

Jesse Lingard wants to return to West Ham United this winter, it has been revealed…

What’s the word?

According to the ever-reliable ExWHUemployee, the 28-year-old midfielder has told the Irons of his desire to re-sign for the club during the January transfer window amid reports of his discontent at Manchester United.

His brother, Louie Scott, who is also his agent, is keen on the move too, whilst the Hammers’ hierarchy would like to complete a deal as quickly as possible with Said Benrahma set to represent Algeria at the Africa Cup of Nations next year.

Are you excited with the Lingard news?

YES!

YES!

NO!

NO!

It remains to be seen how much the England international would command at this stage, though some claims emerged recently suggesting that just £10m could be enough to seal him.

Transfermarkt value Lingard at £19.8m.

Major update

This exciting development is sure to leave everyone concerned with West Ham absolutely buzzing, ranging from the coaching staff to the London Stadium faithful.

After the last game of the season, manager David Moyes made it clear that he would like to keep hold of Lingard, telling reporters (via the Evening Standard):

“I hope Jesse’s here, we’d like to keep him, he’s done an exceptional job for us but there’s no guarantees, he’s not our player.”

Evidently, a move failed to materialise, even despite assistant Stuart Pearce’s plea right before deadline day.

“We would like him to come and join us. That has been an open secret. He was wonderful last year,” he told talkSPORT before adding: “He’s a special lad and was very good around the players – the players really like him. His ability shone out last year and gave us a great option in our squad.”

These are feelings that have been echoed by the fanbase, quite frequently, too. In fact, in direct response to Ex’s update, several supporters went wild on social media, as relayed by Hammers.News this weekend.

It’s hardly a surprise to see such jubilation over a half-season loanee but the Red Devils outcast made quite the impact and evidently, he became an instant hit around east London.

His nine goals and five assists helped steer the Hammers into a historic sixth-place finish and subsequently, the Europa League, where they have since qualified for the knockout stages.

Who cost more?

Lingard’s experience in Europe and in the Premier League could help Moyes’ side in their quest for glory in the competitions as well as in their attempts to breach the top six this time around.

This update will delight many at West Ham.
