According BBC Sports Pundit Garth Crooks, Tottenham manager Jose Mourinho should have signed Manchester United midfielder Jesse Lingard on loan.

The England international has impressed so far since joining West Ham on loan in January, scoring three goals in four Premier League games for David Moyes’ side.

Crooks believes Lingard would have been a great signing for Mourinho.

He wrote in his BBC Sport team of the week column:

“The Manchester United loanee is having a ball in east London. David Moyes and Jose Mourinho are former managers of Manchester United and both know exactly what Lingard can do.

“I find it particularly interesting that it is Moyes who has given Lingard a chance to rejuvenate his career, when it was Spurs who desperately needed him. Lingard is playing out of his skin.”
