West Ham United remain interested in a deal to bring Jesse Lingard back to the London Stadium in the January transfer window.
That’s according to a claim made by ExWHUemployee, who revealed in a recent update on The West Ham Way that David Moyes is still extremely keen to secure a deal for the Manchester United winger this month.
However, the club insider went on to state that the 29-year-old is still considering his options before deciding where his future lies, although it is claimed that the player and his agent are “flirting” with a move to West Ham.
In his update, Ex said: “Moyes is very keen to bring the player back and Lingard is considering his options with no decisions made as yet. Although, it’s fair to say the player and his agent love a bit of West Ham flirting.”
Considering just how impressive Lingard was for West Ham during his brief loan spell in East London last season, the news that the potential return of the England international is still very much alive is sure to have left many of the club’s fanbase buzzing.
Indeed, over his 16 Premier League appearances for the Hammers last time out, the £18m-rated forward scored nine goals, registered five assists and created three big chances for his teammates, as well as taking an average of 2.6 shots and making 1.1 key passes per game.
As such, it is not difficult to understand why Moyes is said to be so keen on securing a deal for the 29-year-old once again this January, nor is it hard to fathom why fans would love to see the attacking midfielder make a return to east London this winter.
Lingard undoubtedly has the ability to help fire the Hammers to a top-four finish in the league come next May.
