According to Sky Sports, Manchester United star Jesse Lingard could leave the club on a temporary basis in the upcoming January transfer window.

The 27-year-old is said to be unhappy about his lack of game time this season, having started only the EFL Cup game with Luton Town.

Further details of the report claim that the player’s representatives have already held discussions with Spanish side Real Sociedad who are currently placed second in the La Liga table over a possible move.

The England international has dropped down the pecking order and has found opportunities hard to get following the arrivals of Bruno Fernandes and Donny van de Beek.

He scored 4 goals in 40 appearances across all competitions for the club last season while battling some personal problems.
