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.
