Lingard’s heart set on the Hammers

Lingard has a very special relationship with Moysie

It’s great news to hear from our northern man Terry Robbins that Jesse Lingard had his heart set on West Ham from the minute he knew David Moyes wanted him.

We know how good Terry’s contacts are at Manchester United and City and this is brilliant news.

As he reported earlier Burnley were among the clubs interested in Jesse and the Old Trafford view was that the midfielder would take that option because it was close to home.

Instead of the six clubs who came for him West Ham was the only one which attracted him and to be honest that has been patently obvious in the way that he has performed since arriving.

And after Sunday’s match the fella was talking like a permanent Hammer given all the “we as a team” statements he was making after the defeat of Leicester City.

United will be offering Jesse a new deal very soon but there’s a total resignation at Old Trafford that he will not be accepting.

He clearly has his heart set on West Ham United given the choice that he made from the six and if I can get the odds I’ll be having a decent bet on that.

  1. Not a surprise that Jesse might want to continue a great and happy career at West Ham United. Unemotional cynics will naturally think that he will be swayed by an extra oomph to salary to go elsewhere. That may be perceived as his agent’s task – to get the most finance for his client and himself. However, there are immeasurable rewards at stake in Jesse’s case. He certainly strikes me as the type of guy who values his life for today and is loving life and a future with West Ham United. Not a hint of Arnie, Dimitri or Journeyman about Jesse and his future.

  2. The Mancs won’t get him back as they both know he’s not going to get regular game time with Fernandes in that role.

    Much as his success with us is entirely down to his own efforts, I can’t see him taking any kind of risk going anywhere else when he’s so obviously fitted in well at West Ham.

    That could even drive down the fee – if he won’t go anywhere else and they can’t keep him, maybe the final fee will end up being realistic.

  3. no matter how how good u r… its the connection with your team mates and the confidence u have with urself and ur team mates is what makes u excel and effective.. and the satisfaction and enjoyment for each game will be priceless.

    • He may like it at West Ham but he won’t go to a team that struggles every year.
      I would think he would want assurances about squad investment, people like Declan hanging around etc.
      I think his agent will be working overtime, if some offers him 200k a week with champions league football every year then for his own sake he would be mad not to grab it.
      Then through claret tinted glasses , I hope so much he joins us !!
      I think it could attract other good players to the club when they see the team spirit and him enjoying himself.

  4. Let’s hope Lingard can stay as he won’t get any playing time at Man Utd. Even if Arsenal try for him he may only be a bit part player. All I can say is David Moyes should be manager of the season even just for his buys of the season. I hope they can keep this up for next season. I mainly want to see us above (1) SPURS
    (2) ARSENAL
    (3) CRYSTAL PALACE

    NUFF SAID
