Trevor Sinclair has questioned Jesse Lingard’s ambitions after the Manchester United star reportedly turned down a move to West Ham during the summer transfer window.
West Ham were keen on signing Lingard after he had a stellar second half of last season on loan at the Hammers, helping them to a place in the Europe League and getting himself back into the England squad.
“If he doesn’t get given the assurances and signs the new deal, then he’s not as ambitious as I’d like him to be,” Sinclair told TalkSPORT.
“I am confused, why he didn’t join West Ham permanently? He was loved there, he was the main man. He played once for Manchester United last season, he played 16 times for West Ham. He scored goals, got back into the England squad, why would’t he want to sign for them?”
