Lingard loan move to West Ham ‘is a success’


The former FA Cup final winning goalscorer posted a picture of his bags packed late on Thursday, accompanied by a caption confirming his impending arrival in the capital.

Jesse Lingard has completed his loan move from Manchester United to West Ham until the end of the season.

The 28-year-old has been a peripheral figure at Old Trafford throughout 2020/21, and is yet to feature in the Premier League. He’s been restricted to just 179 minutes of action in cup competitions, and last played for United in their FA Cup third round win over Watford at the beginning of the month.

Talk of a loan move away surfaced at the beginning of January, and after weeks of speculation it’s West Ham who have managed to snare Lingard on a temporary deal until the end of the season.

Confirming his arrival on their official website, Lingard told West Ham TV: “I’m excited. It’s another new chapter in my life. Nothing is guaranteed but I’ve come here to work hard and help the team and bring my experience. That’s the main aim. I just want to enjoy my football and get back playing again and get my feet back on the pitch.


“There were lots of clubs involved but, for me personally, I felt this was the right move. I’ve obviously had a previous relationship with the manager as he was at Man U and I’ve played under him before, so he knows my qualities and what I can bring to the team. I know a couple of the players as well – I know Dec [Rice] very well from the England side – and I feel I can really settle in here quickly.”

“It’s important that a player and manager have a good relationship. He’s got really good morals, he gets his team working hard and I’ve had a chat with him already and there are no guarantees – it’s down to me to put the work in and put the graft in, to get into the team and play well week-in, week-out.”


“I can’t wait to show [the West Ham fans] what I’ve got in store. I’m excited and I want to help the team push up the table as far as they can.”

West Ham manager David Moyes, who worked with Lingard during his time at Old Trafford, added: “I’ve seen him play as a young boy, when he was still a wide player on the right, and I’ve seen him play off the left. He’s played for England as a No10, he’s played for England as a No8, and I actually think if we needed him as a False 9, he could do that as well.

“We’re bringing in that versatility, I’ve wanted to try to get an energetic team at the moment and Jesse has been known for his work-rate and effort, so I think he’ll fit in nicely with what we’ve got.


“I hope he brings us a little bit of quality too, and a winning mentality from Manchester United.”

Earlier on Friday, United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer hinted that he expects Lingard to return to the club ahead of next season, when he will heading into the final year of his contract.

That is despite West Ham’s best efforts to insert an option or obligation to buy clause into his loan deal.

“‘We want Jesse to come back here revitalised and having shown at West Ham how good a player he is,” Solskjaer told his pre-match press conference ahead of Sunday’s game with Arsenal (via MailOnline Sport). “He’s just been unfortunate with a couple of issues, some periods he had to stay away from us with COVID, isolation and close contact.


‘[The] rest of the team has done well, little to no injuries, not forced his way into the team – [he can] come back and show he’s a Manchester United player through and through.”

Lingard’s move to the London Stadium is an opportunity to get his stalling career back on track, and seems to be an one that he’s relishing if his recent social media posts are anything to go by.

WestHam Targets Juve’s Khedira

Juventus midfielder Sami Khedira has reportedly emerged as a potential transfer target for West Ham United.
Having recently turned 33 years of age and been required to overcome several significant injuries, Khedira is expected to leave Juventus during the next window.

According to Calciomercato, the London Stadium is a possible destination for the veteran, who has previously been linked with Arsenal and Wolverhampton Wanderers.

The report claims that Khedira is open to a switch to England’s capital due to his partner Melanie Leupolz having recently penned a three-year deal with Chelsea Women.

Although Khedira still has just over a year left on his deal in Turin, Juventus may be prepared to part ways with the player for a cut-price fee.


Westham announces Moyes as new Manager.

West Ham have announced that David Moyes has returned to the club on an 18-month deal to replace Manuel Pellegrini as the new head coach.

Pellegrini was relieved of his duties following the Irons’ defeat to Leicester City on Friday, with the club languishing just one place and a single point above the relegation zone.

West Ham have managed just five wins in 19 this season despite a wealth of investment since the Chilean took over and find themselves in real danger of relegation, despite pre-season expectations of a tilt at Europe.

Having made the decision to part with Pellegrini, West Ham have wasted no time in drafting in a replacement, with the club announcing that Moyes has returned for a second spell at the club.

“It’s fabulous to be back,” Moyes said via a West Ham statement. “It feels great to be home. I’ve missed being here because I really enjoyed it. I enjoyed being around the stadium and I loved being in this part of the world and I missed the Club, so I can’t wait to get started.

“I’m feeling very proud that I’m back here at West Ham. But I think more importantly I’ll be looking to see what I can do and what I can make improvements to, how we can get some wins with the players and how we can get some quick wins on the field as well.

David Moyes returns to West Ham United
West Ham United are pleased to confirm that David Moyes has returned to the Club as first-team manager. Moyes has signed an 18-month deal and begins work immediately ahead of the New Year’s Day…

“I do believe that the squad of players I’ve got here is a better squad of players than when I took over before, so I am looking forward to working with them.”

The Scot was first recruited by the club in November 2017, as they faced a similar predicament. The former Everton and Manchester United boss helped the Hammers steer clear of danger into 13th place.

He was let go upon the expiry of his short-term deal the following summer, with the club opting to go in another direction, but 18 months after his departure, he has once again been tasked with rescuing the Hammers’ season.


Westham’s Pellegrini sacked!!!

…with the club just a single place above the relegation zone entering the new year.

The Hammers fell to a humbling defeat at home to a much-rotated Leicester City side on Saturday to round out a disappointing 2019, defeated by goals from Kelechi Iheanacho and Demarai Gray – and 90min understand that captain Mark Noble was one of the senior players to tell the club’s hierarchy that a change at the top was needed.

A club statement read: “Joint-Chairmen David Sullivan and David Gold, along with the Board and everyone at West Ham United, would like to place on record their thanks to Manuel for his service over the past 18 months.”

Sullivan added: “It is with great disappointment that we’ve had to make this decision. Manuel is a gentleman and it has been a real pleasure to work with someone of his calibre.

“However, it has become clear that that a change is required to get the Club back on track in line with our ambitions this season. We felt it was necessary to act now in order to give the new manager as much time as possible to try and achieve that goal.”

Reports earlier in the week had suggested that David Moyes could take over from Pellegrini if the Chilean was sacked, although the Scot was insisting on a permanent deal rather than the short-term deal he was handed in his last spell at the club – a short-term deal which was never extended.

Only one side outside of the bottom three have conceded more league goals than the Hammers this season, while only four teams – Watford, Palace, Bournemouth and Newcastle – have scored fewer than the east London side’s 21 goals.
