New Lingard bid but United mind seems made up

By CandH’s Dave Langton

Newcastle have made a new bid for Jesse Lingard.

Craig Hope of The Daily Mail reports that the Magpies have tabled a fresh offer to sign the attacking midfielder on a loan deal before the transfer deadline.

We have reported previously that West Ham do not believe a deal for the England international is all that doable in this transfer window because United deem the Irons a rival and have next to no interest in strengthening David Moyes’ side.

Instead, it appears that he could move to Newcastle, with a bid tabled worth £3m as a loan fee, and a further £4m if the club avoid relegation to the Championship.

Our northern man Terry Robbins has written that United allegedly want £13 million in teh avoidance of relegation clayse.

Lingard was receptive to the idea of moving to West Ham and could well also be open to a move to Newcastle if an agreement can be struck in the coming hours.

Time is certainly running out for both the Hammers and the Magpies, though.

  1. You guys at C&H just report the news I get that . I have to say though I am fuming at the lack of transfers . We’re led to believe Moyes is in charge but I have to say it feels very much like a Sullivan window. We tried we failed , look at our ambition big bids for big players everything left late . That is a Sullivan tactic. What a bad window even if Moyes is in control he needs to look at himself and question what is the point in having Newman , shocking !

    • Hold on. The facts are that in 25 years of club management at Birmingham and here they have always brought in players so why didn’t we this time?. Also he is no longer since Kretinsky arrived in a position to do as he wants as he is not in control. Seems to me it doesn’t matter how he operates he will always be the problem as far as some are concerned regardless.
