Lingard’s father looks to be calling the shots

By Hughie Southon

David Moyes is no closer to discovering whether his much wanted player – Jesse Lingard – will become a West Ham player either permanently or on loan this winter or next summer.

The Manchester United and England midfielder’s future remains as much in the balance now as it has since he left the London Stadium in the summer.

His father and agent Roy George – forget misinformation about his brother being in that role – appears to be calling all the shots on his son’s future.

What we do know is that Moysie would love to bring him back to the east end but that may not be his father’s aim having been behind the move to keep him at Old Trafford for the first half of the season at least.

The big question now is whether the new manager – whoever that may be – will want him at the club and whether the player and Roy George can hang around long enough to find out with his 29th birthday arriving on the 15th of December.

Much may depend on how Nikola Vlasic – his believed replacement – performs between now and than.

  1. “forget misinformation about his brother being in that role” – dig at certain other people is really not needed, rather concentrate about your own content.

    • lol. HOW SENSITIVE ARE YOU? lol. It wasn’t a dig. It was explaining that it’s misinformation (which has been repeated in a number of places). We do concentrate on our own content which is why we have 250k followers.

      • I read most of the different sites and forums but just find it ruins it when posts clearly includes digs at each other – this is not the only site who does it, but the tone is often unnecessary and i find it makes it more into a competition instead of factual reporting.

        • The reason it was written was to ensure people knew the truth and weren’t under the wrong impression. That was the purpose – not a dig at all. We never do digs anyway unlike some. It’s unprofessional and can come back to bite you so your accusation can be put to bed – rest easy!

  2. Surely it’s Lingard himself who’ll make the decision. He needs game time if he wants to make the World Cup squad next year and I’d say he’s more likely to get that with us rather than at Man U.
