Jesse Lingard ‘is ready to quit Manchester United FOR GOOD in January’ with the midfielder yet to start a league game this season… and West Ham ‘are keen to secure a permanent deal’ after he sparkled on loan last year

  • Manchester United outcast Jesse Lingard could finally leave the club this month 
  • The midfielder is yet to start a game in the Premier League this season  
  • He impressed on loan at West Ham last season and could return to the Hammers 

Manchester United’s out-of-favour midfielder Jesse Lingard is ready to finally seal an exit from the club this month after failing to start a Premier League game this season, according to reports. 

Lingard was so impressive on loan at West Ham United last season with some searing form that nearly rewarded him with a place in the England squad, but he returned to Old Trafford looking for a second chance that has not come. 

Now the Mirror report that Lingard finally wants out after more than two decades with his boyhood club as he looks to seal regular first team football, with the London Stadium a possible destination.

West Ham boss David Moyes is keen to be reunited with him after impressing on loan last year

Sportsmail reported this week how United are facing a dressing room unrest of 17 players who are currently unhappy at Old Trafford, including Edinson Cavani, Paul Pogba and Donny van de Beek amid a difficult season for the Red Devils. 

Lingard is understood to be among this crap of dissatisfied stars, having not featured for the club since a 1-1 draw against Young Boys on December 8 – just the third time he has played a game under interim boss Ralf Rangnick.  

His contract will expire in the summer and become a free agent – meaning West Ham could snap him up on a cut price deal with United keen not to lose him for nothing after starting his career with the club.

West Ham and boss David Moyes are determined to secure a permanent deal for Lingard, the report adds, having failed to snatch him up last summer.

He has played 12 times in all competitions this season, with eight sub appearances in the league and two starts in cup games – netting twice overall. 

Last season with the Hammers, he played 16 times, scoring nine goals, and will be desperate to return to that top level form.
