West Ham United: Fans buzzing after hearing big Jesse Lingard development -West Ham Transfer Rumours

Flocking to Twitter, many West Ham United fans have been left buzzing after hearing a major development in their bid to sign Manchester United star Jesse Lingard.

As widely reported, the England international’s future at Old Trafford has now been plunged into major doubt as the player’s talks over a new contract break down (BBC).

Indeed, the 28-year-old’s decision to shelve contract talks could mean he has placed one foot out the exit door, with his current deal set to expire in 2022.

This means he is set to leave Manchester as a free agent at the end of this season as a host of clubs reportedly take note, including the likes of Barcelona, AC Milan, Everton, Newcastle United, Tottenham and the Hammers (ESPN).

Dropping a teasing West Ham transfer hint on Instagram, Lingard has already added fuel to the fire of a possible reunion with manager David Moyes after his 2020/21 loan spell at the London Stadium.

In a major development, The Sun have now shared a rather promising update, claiming that he ‘looks to be on his way’ to West Ham in a ‘£10 million move’. They added that the attacking midfielder has ‘already begun’ making ‘personal arrangements’ for a return down south, with his club looking to agree a permanent move in January rather than a loan.

West Ham fans buzz…

As this exciting claim drops, you can understand why a plethora of Irons supporters are absolutely overjoyed.

Lauded as ‘absolutely phenomenal’ and the best player on form in the Premier League during his time at West Ham earlier this year (Adrian Durham, talkSPORT), his haul in the final third showcases just what he can bring.

Racking up nine goals and setting up four others in 16 top-flight appearances over the second half of 2020/21 (WhoScored), if Lingard does end up back at West Ham, many supporters will be optimistic that he can replicate such sensational form.
