Exclusive: Pundit can’t see where Jesse Lingard would’ve played at Leicester City

Exclusive: Pundit can’t see where Jesse Lingard would’ve played at Leicester City -Leicester City News

Speaking exclusively to The Transfer Tavern, former Premier League forward Dean Windass believes Brendan Rodgers would have found it hard to find a place for Jesse Lingard in Leicester City’s starting XI.

After an impressive loan spell with West Ham, where he scored nine goals in 16 appearances, Lingard reportedly caught the attention of Leicester.

Unsurprisingly, West Ham were also interested in signing the £75,000-a-week attacking midfielder, but in the end, he decided against pushing for a move and remained at Manchester United.

Would you have taken Lingard?

No

Had that not been the case, though, and Lingard did end up at Leicester, Windass thinks Rodgers would have had quite a dilemma.

“You’ve got Harvey Barnes on the left hand side who’s come back from injury, who’s an unbelievable young talent with pace to burn,” the ex-Hull City star said. “So where would you play Jesse Lingard if he had gone to Leicester?”

If James Maddison did depart to Arsenal, then perhaps there would have been room for another attacker like Lingard.

But with the likes of Maddison and Barnes, the above is certainly a good question to raise.

From Lingard’s perspective, though, he may need to leave for another club eventually, with game time at Old Trafford likely to be limited following the additions of Cristiano Ronaldo and Jadon Sancho.
