Speaking exclusively to The Transfer Tavern, former Premier League striker Dean Windass believes Jesse Lingard will remain at Manchester United following his excellent spell with West Ham.
According to the MailOnline, Lingard’s future will be resolved next month when he holds talks with his parent club.
West Ham are eager to keep hold of the 28-year-old attacking midfielder after a loan spell which saw him have a hand in 13 goals in just 16 games.
Will West Ham be Armstrong's first pick?
We have to be
Windass, however, is now expecting him to stay at Old Trafford given that form in what would be a huge blow for David Moyes.
“I think he’ll go back to Man U,” the ex-Hull City striker exclusively told TT. “It’s a situation now I think that he’s proved Ole Gunnar Solskjaer wrong, and Ole would have said, ‘Go and prove me wrong.’
“Fair play to you, son. You’ve gone out and you’ve been absolutely outstanding.”
With the way he played during his time at the London Stadium, you could not blame Lingard for fancying his chances when it comes to breaking into Solskjaer’s starting XI.
The England international will surely be wary, though, of United’s well-documented pursuit of another attacker this transfer window, Borussia Dortmund star Jadon Sancho.
