Ian Wright has told his Wrighty’s House podcast that he “can’t wait to see” Jesse Lingard join a club where he is without the pressure of playing for Manchester United – and discussed how he can get West Ham United fans on side.
Lingard, 28, is expected to leave Manchester United this month. The England international has dropped into the last six months of his United contract – and The Athletic claim West Ham are in talks to complete a loan deal until the end of the season.
The Hammers and United are in talks over a loan fee, while Newcastle, West Brom, Sheffield United and Marseille are also keen. But a move to the London Stadium and a reunion with David Moyes seems to be the most likely move.
Wright is a big fan of Lingard and believes he will join his old club West Ham. He feels that Lingard is joining a side that are in a good spell of form, and believes it will only take some improved confidence to get the playmaker back to his best.
