Jesse Lingard is likely to turn down a move to West Ham this summer, according to a new report from KUMB.
The attacking midfielder is a free agent after leaving Manchester United at the end of his contract.
He has offers from a number of clubs, and there have been reports suggesting that the Hammers have made him an offer.
It would be the third time that boss David Moyes has tried to sign Lingard, after having him on loan two seasons ago.
KUMB now reports, though, that the England international wants to stay up north, opening the door to a potential switch to either Newcastle or Everton, who are both said to have entered the race to secure his signature.
It would be a significant blow to the Hammers if Lingard said no again, as the club have so far yet to strengthen their forward line. Nayef Aguerd and Alphonse Areola have both come in permanently thus far.
Lingard has said no twice before; it wouldn’t be a huge surprise if he said no again.
