Man Utd outcast Jesse Lingard 'looked at by Tottenham, Sheffield United and West Ham on loan transfer this month'

TOTTENHAM, West Ham and Sheffield United are looking at signing Manchester United midfielder Jesse Lingard on loan, reports claim.

The 28-year-old Englishman has been outcast by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer this season, failing to appear in any Premier League matches and featuring in just three cup games.

As a result he is being linked with a move away from Old Trafford and the two London rivals along with Chris Wilder's Blades have emerged as the front runners for a temporary deal, according to talkSPORT.

Spurs have struggled for goals from midfield this season, with just nine of their 33 goals coming from players other than Heung-min Son and Harry Kane.

Meanwhile, David Moyes’ side are looking to bolster the creativity in their squad to take the burden off of Michail Antonio’s shoulders.

And it goes without saying that Wilder’s Sheffield United need some more firepower in front of goal having netted just ten times in 19 Premier League matches.

Lingard has proven over previous seasons that he can be a major contributor when it comes to goals, most notably when he scored 13 times for Man Utd in their 2017-18 season.

He has been a Man Utd player for his entire playing career but has had four loan moves in that time.

He spent the 2012-13 season with Leicester and the following campaign with Birmingham City and Brighton.

 

Then in the 2014-15 season he temporarily made the move to Pride Park as he played 15 times for Derby County before returning to the Red Devils to make his first team breakthrough.

Lingard also featured prominently for England at the 2018 FIFA World Cup and scored in Gareth Southgate's side's 6-1 win over Panama.

The midfielder has been capped 24 times for England but has not received a call-up since 2019.
