West Ham insiders have been telling Claret and Hugh for days they can see no point in signing Jesse Lingard.
Wherever we have gone the response has been the same, that we have such top players in that area that a only 90 per cent fit Lingard would be a sub standard signing.
However, our key contact has made it clear that the manager alone will have the final say demonstrating the strength of David Moyes at the club right now.
Today he gave a so called update which merely said the player was getting back to himself which can mean something or nothing.
Meanwhile CandH contributor Sean Whetstone told Twitter: “A fresh report has linked Lingard to move to Everton as a free agent but in a separate twist today he published a photo of himself on a Emirates plane headed to Dubai.”
And when we asked our main contact if the club knew where he was off to the response was “no idea” but many of us can see little point in him signing given the strength we have in midfield.”
He has also been linked with Turkish clubs but there has been no response from anywhere in that league.
