WEST HAM will finalize Jesse Lingard’s signing after Manchester United agreed to loan the midfielder

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer held talks with the 28-year-old last week on another side effect

Lingard has only appeared three times this season, all in cup competitions, and has only scored one league goal in over two years

Therefore, the chance of getting the much-needed game time under old boss David Moyes is seen as attractive to the United Academy’s product

West Ham is hoping to turn his good form into a serious boost to European qualifying lately

Solskjaer admitted over the weekend that he would have been “happy” to keep Lingard in his squad ahead of a hectic second half of the season

Since Sheffield United and West Brom are also keen, the Red Devils have given a loan bill a green light

Last month, United triggered a one-year extension option on its contract, which will now expire in the summer of 2022

Lingard wasn’t involved in United’s win over Liverpool over the weekend and Solskjaer discussed his options after the game

“So of course he wants to play football, we have to see and I’ll sit down with Jesse and make a decision about what we’re going to do”

“So far, he’s been the ultimate pro who trained well this morning with a small group that wasn’t on the squad

“I’ll sit down and see if anything comes up I’m very happy to have him with us as I know he could have played today and done well”

West Ham has a maximum of two domestic loan signings on its first team – Said Benrahma and Craig Dawson The Brentford winger is nearing a £ 20m permanent move
