Manchester United attacking midfielder Jesse Lingard has been told he’s too good to be sitting on the bench at Manchester United.
Speaking to talkSPORT, West Ham coach Stuart Pearce said: “Jesse Lingard has missed the opportunity to leave Manchester United in this transfer window. He can reassess his situation come January once again.
“He can decide whether there is an opportunity to move clubs or whatever. He holds the cards. The most important thing for him at the moment is his football. He is playing the odd game for Man United.
“But he’s playing extremely well for England. Those performances for England might just help him. He is too good a player to be sat on the outside of it not playing to be honest. He is at an age where he needs to be playing now.”
West Ham were interested in signing Lingard during the summer transfer window but he opted to stay and fight for his place at Old Trafford instead.
