Jesse Lingard drops huge hint he will return to West Ham with Instagram post after Man Utd contract talks collapse

JESSE LINGARD posted a huge hint he’s heading back to West Ham after Manchester United contract talks collapsed.

SunSport revealed earlier on Friday the England midfielder is poised for a £10million return in January following his loan success with the Hammers last season.

And Lingard, who will be 29 next month, put up an Instagram photo of himself celebrating two goals while in action for the Hammers.

The 32-cap star has already begun making personal arrangements for the switch down south after ten years at Old Trafford.

He turned down a new United deal in early September and has barely figured in boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s plans recently.

But in the second half of last term Lingard helped West Ham into Europe with nine goals and five assists in the Premier League.

That earned him a Three Lions’ recall – but also an £18million price tag that the Hammers regarded as too high.

Now, though, United are thought to be willing to offload Lingard in the next transfer window in a permanent move rather than another loan.

He feels aggrieved at starting so rarely despite impressing from the bench.


Solskjaer has publicly backed the Old Trafford academy product.

The under-pressure Norwegian said: “Every player wants to play. Can’t fault attitude.

“Jesse has done well when he has played for us. He will get his chances.”

But now it appears Lingard wants action more than words.
