Lingard permanent West Ham switch in doubt

West Ham could be set to miss out in the permanent signing of Jesse Lingard this summer.

The England midfielder has had a career renaissance since joining the Hammers on loan from Manchester United in January, scoring 9 goals in 13 appearances.

That was enough to earn him a recall to the England squad, and he looks like he has helped propel the East London club to European football next season.

However, with the club’s finances hard hit by the pandemic, they are unable to match Lingard’s demands – he is holding out for a  four-year deal worth £100,000 a week.

If no compromise can be reached, he will be heading back to Old Trafford at the end of the season, although he is unlikely to stay there long.

There will be a ready market for a man who did not play a single Premier League minute for United in the first part of the season, but has since reminded everybody of his talent.
