Jesse Lingard is on the verge of a move to Nottingham Forest, according to The Times.
The long-running saga finally appears on the verge of completion but he is poised to join the newly-promoted club instead of making a move to West Ham.
Forest are reported to have made Lingard an offer worth just below £200,000-per-week, a bid that is £50,000-per-week higher than what the Irons offered.
David Moyes was keen to bring Lingard back to the club after his successful loan spell.
The report states the Irons were willing to make Lingard the top earner at the club but there were some doubts over whether that would be a smart move given the wage structure at the London Stadium.
The Hammers are said to remain hopeful that the England international will change his mind as he bids to join a club who can give him a platform to make it into the squad for this year’s World Cup.
