As per his Patreon channel ‘The West Ham Way’, he has said that the 28-year-old is on his way to the capital to speak to Moyes about his future.
The Verdict: Big twist
After Lingard enjoyed a successful spell on loan with West Ham last season, scoring nine goals and providing five assists in 16 matches (Transfermarkt), there had been hope that he would stay with the club on a permanent basis. However, it soon emerged that the £19.8m-valued midfielder was looking to stay at Manchester United to fight for a place in Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side (via The Sun).

However, with just four minutes on the pitch in the Red Devils’ opening three Premier League matches this term, things may have changed. If the Hammers could get the deal done, it would come as be a huge boost to their hopes of being competitive in four competitions this season, given how Lingard performed during his loan spell in east London earlier this year.
