According to a new report this evening Jesse Lingard has been pushing for a move to Saudi Arabia all summer and apparently had no interest in joining West Ham.
CBS journalist Ben Jacobs, taking to his Twitter account (23 September), claiming the former Manchester United midfielder asked for four weeks training with Stephen Gerrard managed Al-Ettifaq.
Jacobs had tweeted: “More on Jesse Lingard’s possible move to Al-Ettifaq. Lingard’s been pushing all summer for a Saudi opportunity. He asked for four weeks training.
“Al-Ettifaq plan to assess him and very open to signing him if next month goes well. Al-Shabab have also considered Lingard.”
Fabrizio Romano also took to his personal Twitter too reporting that it will be up to both parties if they will look to go ahead with a permanent transfer after Lingard had been training with West Ham all summer.
All this after David Moyes offered him the chance to show his worth to him and West Ham. Dare I use the word shameful as far as Lingard is concerned.
