West Ham could sign Jesse Lingard for as little as £10million in the January transfer window, according to reports. Hammers boss David Moyes wanted to re-sign Lingard in the summer following his successful loan spell at the club last season. However, Manchester United priced the east London side out of a deal.
Lingard has entered the final year of his contract at Old Trafford.
The England international hoped to have more regular game-time under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer this season after returning from his loan.
However, the 28-year-old is yet to start in either the Premier League or Champions League this season.
United were holding out for £25m in the summer window.
“He’s come on and scored a few goals for us, that’s been very important for us.
“He knows what we want, we want to prolong his contract, we see him as an important player for us, it’s obviously up to him to get more playing time, it may be up to me giving him more playing time because he deserves to but every time I pick a team, I have to leave some players out.
“Hopefully we can get a deal sorted for Jesse because we really rate him, he’s a top player and top person who’s good to have around the club.”
