Flocking to Twitter, these West Ham United have erupted over the latest news involving transfer target and Manchester United star Jesse Lingard.
A highly sought-after target for West Ham in the summer, manager David Moyes couldn’t sign him on a permanent deal after an impressive spell on loan over the second half of 2020/2021.

His contract expires in 2022 and it is believed that new deal talks have stalled with many clubs now circling to sign the England international, including West Ham (ESPN).
