West Ham manager, David Moyes has hinted that Jesse Lingard could be signed on a permanent basis, after his loan deal.
The 28 year old recently joined the Hammers on a six-month loan deal, after failing to nail a regular starting place at Manchester United.
Lingard has already proven to be an impact buy for Moyes’ side, after bagging two goals on his debut, and the former United coach has revealed he’s impressed with the start he’s had.
Speaking to the media recently, Moyes said, “The situation is here that Jesse Lingard is going to get a chance to get a good look at West Ham and see what he thinks of us and whether he likes it.
“And we’re going to get a chance to have a look at Jesse with the supporters. We’re going to be able to decide what we think in five or six months’ time.
“He is a more mature boy now, someone who is getting to the prime of his career. He wants to play well and be on the pitch. We don’t want to get carried away with one game but we’re really pleased.”
Lingard has a deal with Man United until 2022, so it remains to be seen whether the club will sell, even if West Ham made an approach this summer.
