According to The Sun, Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been impressed with Jesse Lingard’s performances on loan at West Ham and wants to give him a second chance at Manchester United.

The 28 year old had been frozen out by Solskjaer, failing to make a single appearance in the Premier League or Champions League and was named in just four top-flight matchday squads this season.

Lingard has a little more than a year left on his £100,000-a-week terms, and the club could be willing to offer him a new three-year contract in order to both increase his value and give him a chance to impress Solskjaer once again.

However, it is believed West Ham will try and land Lingard on a permanent move at the end of the campaign after helping their European push.

Since joining West Ham on loan in January, Lingard has scored five times and registered three assists in his seven Hammers league games to date.

Lingard was rewarded for his good form on loan at West Ham with a recall to Gareth Southgate’s England squad, having lost his place in the side following his lack of game time at Manchester United.

Lingard played 90 minutes as England beat San Marino 5-0 on Thursday.
