West Ham United: Ex reveals club can bring in Lingard despite Newcastle interest

Image for West Ham United: Ex reveals club can bring in Lingard despite Newcastle interest

According to ExWHUemployee, West Ham United is becoming more confident they can sign former Manchester United outcast Jesse Lingard this summer as he is keen to return to London. 

The Hammers have already made a move in the midfield area this summer by picking up promising young star Flynn Downes from Swansea City and are now focusing on bringing in former loan star Lingard, who enjoyed a successful time at the club during the 2020/21 Premier League season.

While the former England international has garnered interest from both Saudi Arabia and MLS, Ex believes the Irons have an excellent chance to sign Lingard as he would prefer a move to London and should get an answer from him shortly.

He said on the West Ham Way Patreon, “The club are becoming more and more confident that Jesse Lingard will sign for us. It is thought that Newcastle have also made a move but that the player is keener to come back to London and be at a team he knows he can settle in. We are hopeful for a final answer from him very shortly.”

TIF Thoughts on Ex’s comments…

Despite not playing much for Manchester United last season, making just 21 appearances across all competitions with two goals and one assist, he showed during his stint at West Ham that he still has much to offer in the topflight of English football.

Will Lingard sign for West Ham?





Considering this recent show of form, it feels like a move to Saudi Arabia or MLS would be a waste for the 29-year-old attacking midfielder. Both of these leagues have been considered when a player comes to the end of their careers, but we think Lingard has more to show and could find a good home at West Ham this summer.

The Hammers need another attacking outlet to partner with the likes of Jarrod Bowen and Michail Antonio as both shone last season but adding a talent like Lingard, who picked up nine goals and five assists in just 16 appearances for the club, could take them to another level next season.
