West Ham make transfer decision on Manchester United star Jesse Lingard

Manchester United midfielder Jesse Lingard has been in outstanding form since joining West Ham on loan in January.

The 28-year-old England international has four goals and two assists to his name in six Premier League matches for the Hammers.

West Ham boss David Moyes is hopeful of signing Jesse Lingard on a permanent basis and believes the 28 year old will want to commit his future to the Hammers.

“I hope we’re going to be in a position to attract many players in the future, because of our league position, because we’re a club with stature, we’re in London, we have a 60,000-plus stadium which will be full every week. I think all those things go in our favour,” said the Hammers boss.

“Jesse wanted to come here, right from the start. When I was talking to him he wanted to come to West Ham. He saw it as a really good place for him. I think he’ll have seen what we’re trying to do.

“He’s joined a good group of players as well. We’ve got international players and I’m hoping we can add to that in the coming transfer window. The job is to try to add to that.

“But I would hope Jesse sees this as a good place if it’s possible to be done, and if we think that we want to do it at the end of the season.”
