West Ham United: Fans erupt at Jesse Lingard claim

West Ham United: Fans erupt at Jesse Lingard claim -West Ham News

According to reports by The Athletic’s David Ornstein, Jesse Lingard has decided that he will not be leaving Manchester United in January.

The journalist wrote that the player has chosen to remain at Manchester United and intends to battle his way into interim manager Ralf Ragnick’s plans, ruling out a move in the upcoming January transfer window.

This comes after The Mirror reported (via The Independent) that West Ham were looking to bring in the 29-year-old on a permanent deal in the January window.

Lingard has played just 87 minutes of Premier League football this season, having come on as a substitute in each of his eight appearances. The attacking midfielder is set to enter the last six months of his contract after talks over a new deal at Old Trafford failed to progress during the summer.

The Englishman enjoyed a fantastic spell on loan at West Ham for the second half of the 2020/21 season, where he scored nine goals and produced five assists in 16 appearances for the club.

These West Ham fans erupted at the news

Ornstein took to Twitter to reveal Lingard’s decision to stay at Man United, amidst all of the transfer rumours linking the player to both West Ham and Newcastle.

A number of Hammers fans erupted in response to the news, with many in dismay following the previous rumours of a potential London Stadium return for the 29-year-old. Here’s what some of them said, with one describing Lingard’s stance as “baffling”:
