Moyes to meet with Lingard in London

Claret and Hugh understand that David Moyes will this evening meet with Jesse Lingard after the Manchester United game against Wolves finishes.

Lingard still rents a flat in London which is thought to be in the same  East London Stratford block as manager David Moyes.

The 28-year-old is on United’s bench this evening at the Molineux Stadium and it remains to be seen if he gets any minutes on the pitch this afternoon.

What exactly will be the topic of conversation is unknown but there is a scenario where Lingard returns on loan to West Ham from Manchester United possibly after signing a new contract.

The meeting is not expected to affect the deal for Nikola Vlasic and there remains a remote possibility that Vlasic and Lingard could both sign.

Lingard has just 12 months remaining on his current contract so a season-long loan without a new contract doesn’t make very much sense.

Time will tell what will happen with the transfer windows scheduled to close next Tuesday night.

Moyes has been outspoken about keeping Lingard and his stance has not changed one bit.

Speaking in a press conference last week, Moyes insisted that West Ham will definitely sign Lingard when the “opportunity” comes.

  1. I would be happy with both signings but if it is one then is has to Vlasic for me, we need to bring in new fresh faces to give the squad a boost. I still harbor hopes we will sign Vlasic, Hlozek and a left back on loan.

    • I’d go for Daryl Dike on loan with an Option, don’t get me wrong love Hložek but we won’t spend what is needed if get Vlasic who can play up top & has eye for goal. Dike got 9 goals in 22 games not prolific but rocket of a shot & still so young fast tall strong beast, works so hard. Palace want & WBA too & be £2-3m loan fee with option, wages wouldn’t be high, I’d love that think he suit Moyes & PL. If does well option is around £20 last time probably be same from what I read. Rather get him Vlasic then Lingard & like a CM still Lewis O’Brien be great think missed a trick not getting Mowatt on free. But Dike seems no loss situation, I like Laborde a lot too but doubt will pay £15m… Tho seems odd Andy Deport who is is so fast top out Ligue 1 & 45 goals in 3 seasons for €10m was a deal tho 29 does it all 20+ goals 10 assits has 3 years left easy. Will do well at Nice, exciting last few days I was surprised Everton sold Vlasic & as last option I’d take Rondon on loan or year deal if wages right bc was very good in PL same age as Antonio. But Dike seems perfect loan too me & we have no CFs but Wolves get Hwang they have a few. Here’s hoping a CF & maybe a Pellegrini or CM with Vlasic!
