David Moyes on the chances of West Ham signing Jesse Lingard permanently

David Moyes on the chances of West Ham signing Jesse Lingard permanently

West Ham United boss David Moyes has provided an update on the club’s hopes of clinching the signature of Jesse Lingard on a permanent basis this summer.

Attacking midfielder Lingard of course made the move to the London Stadium during the winter window.

On the back of a dismal opening half to the campaign, during which he failed to garner a single Premier League appearance for Manchester United, Lingard was granted a loan departure, to top-flight rivals West Ham.

And to say that the 28-year-old has since gone on to impress would be something of an understatement.

Having been handed the freedom of West Ham’s midfield to operate, Lingard has established himself as one of the Premier League’s standout performers over the last couple of months.

All told, the English international has racked up nine goals and three assists across 13 appearances in the colours of the Hammers.

In fact, so impressive has Lingard looked of late, that, this weekend, he went on to secure a Premier League Player and Goal of the Month double for April:

‘Not sure…’

In turn, it has come as little surprise to see speculation begin to mount in the media that West Ham would be keen to make their loan star’s signing permanent in the summer, if handed the opportunity.

Manchester United, for their part, are thought to be open to Lingard’s sale, in a bid to raise funds for their own summer spending spree.

Reports in the English media, meanwhile, have pointed towards a £30 million price-tag being placed on the head of the midfielder.

And, as outlined above, this weekend, David Moyes has provided an update on the situation.

Speaking in a press conference ahead of his side’s meeting with Brighton on Saturday night, the West Ham boss was drawn on the chances of Lingard remaining in the capital beyond the summer.

Moyes, though, remained coy on the subject, explaining:

‘I’m not sure how realistic it is.’

‘I think Jesse has enjoyed himself, I hope he has, we’ve enjoyed having him.’

‘Manchester United, he is their player so they can decide what to do with him. If they choose that they want to let him go then I’d hope he’d consider us as one of his options.’
