Moyes: Lingard deal is fake news

|

David Moyes has said that West Ham United have “not even considered” offering Jesse Lingard a short-term deal to re-join the club.

The 30-year-old is currently training with the Hammers after being released by Nottingham Forest at the end of June.

Lingard enjoyed a purple patch  during a six-month loan spell with the irons in 2021.  Lingard scored nine goals and providing five assists in 16 Premier League appearances to help Moyes’s side finish sixth and qualify for the Europa League.

A Lingard deal is not close according to manager David Moyes

The midfielder eventually left Manchester United upon the expiration of his contract last summer and rejected the chance to re-join West Ham in favour of a one-year deal with Nottingham Forest.

However, Lingard’s form declined to such an extent that he  failed to score or provide an assist in 17 Premier League games for Forest

Speaking at a press conference on Friday ahead of Sunday’s Premier League game against Chelsea, Moyes said. “We’ve not even considered a deal at the moment.

“He’s in training to see if we can get him back fit and get him in decent condition. He’ll be back here next week as well. There’s no news on that as far as short-term deals or anything else.

“Jesse’s a good player, probably needing to get himself in the correct condition. We’re working on him. All players tend to need four or five weeks pre-season and Jesse’s no different from anybody else.”

    If we could have the original Lingard it would be a good move, he is better than anyone we have presently at the club at what he does.

    I hope West Ham give him the bill for his training. I’m sure Jesse can afford it, even though he seems to spend a lot of time living it up on holidays.

  • Eug says:

    You just know that Moyes will get his way and Lingard will get a contract, at the expense of the signing of a young fast skilful player that will get better and better and their value increase. Lingard Mugged us off for 3 transfer windows. Was **** at Forrest and now, no one wants him, he wants to ruin things here. Why cant Moyes and Lingard F Off into the sunset together hand in hand?
