West Ham United: ExWHUemployee slams ongoing Jesse Lingard saga

|

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.

As things stand, Lingard is a free agent, having left Manchester United earlier on in the summer. But his situation still remains unresolved, with endless rumours circulating.

Indeed, Ex recently shared a post explaining that talk of West Ham beating Everton and Tottenham Hotspur to his signature is a little premature as of yet.

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.”

TIF Thoughts on Jesse Lingard and West Ham…

With pre-season now on the way for Premier League clubs, Lingard may well want to attach himself to a new club sooner rather than later in preparation for the new campaign.

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.
