Dean Windass has exclusively told This is Futbol that Jesse Lingard would be a good replacement for Gareth Bale at Tottenham.

Bale has enjoyed something of a revival in the second half of the season, with his treble against Sheffield United taking his tally to nine goals in just nine Premier League starts, and 18 in all competitions.

Should Tottenham sign Jesse Lingard?

Yes

Yes

No

No

Reports believe that Daniel Levy will offer Spurs’ the chance to bring Bale back on loan next term, with the 31-year-old about to entire the final 12 months of his Real Madrid contract.

But Bale has already attracted interest from Everton and there’s no guarantee that he’ll be a Tottenham player next term despite his encouraging end of season form.

And Windass thinks that the north Londoners would be “crying out” for another wide man should Bale decide against returning for a third spell.

Meanwhile, Lingard also has a major decision to make this summer, with his United deal expiring in 2022, although his nine goals in 12 games with West Ham since January means he’s not short of buyers

Spurs have had quite a few odd players over the last ten years, but can you remember them? Here is the first one, who is this former Tottenham man?

Asked whether Lingard to Spurs would suit both parties, Windass told This is Futbol:

“That would be a good one if Bale leaves. That left side would be crying out or the right side, and Jesse can play on either.

“It will be an interesting one. I think that he will go back in pre-season, then that’s the time then because he’s got a year left. It will all be based on what happens in pre-season.”
