Insider ExWHUemployee has slammed the transfer saga surrounding Jesse Lingard and a possible move to West Ham United.
Throughout this summer, and indeed long before, the midfielder has been linked with a switch to the Hammers – heavily influenced by his loan spell with the club.
And with all the noise around this possible deal, the insider has simply called the whole situation ‘ridiculous’.
While speaking on The West Ham Way podcast, he said: “I believe that the club are continuing to have talks with him. Whether he will sign or not, I don’t know at this point.
“I hope Jesse’s going to make his decision sooner rather than later because this is just getting ridiculous.”
Will Jesse Lingard be at West Ham next season?

And if Ex’s comments are accurate, he would appear to be in talks with West Ham about a possible deal. However, this is nothing new – with conversations between player and club dating back to April.
All in all, it’s easy to see why Ex has been left rather exasperated by everything. It truly has developed into a bit of a ‘ridiculous’ saga.
And with the end not yet in sight, it still remains unclear whether the Hammers will land their man or if they will potentially grow tired of it and abandon their pursuit entirely.
