Jesse Lingard has made a decision over which club he wants to play for next season, according to transfer insider Dean Jones.

The 29-year-old has been on West Ham’s transfer wishlist ever since his successful six-month loan spell during the second half of 20/21, when he scored six goals and registered five assists in 16 Premier League appearances for the Hammers.

David Moyes has been trying to sign him permanently ever since but was unable to come to an agreement with Manchester United.

But now Lingard is a free agent and, unsurprisingly, West Ham have put an offer on the table for the midfielder to return to east London.

And Jones has revealed that Lingard has finally made his mind up over which club he wants to join and the Hammers seem particularly confident they’ll be the ones receiving the phone call this week.

He told GiveMeSport: “The signs have been really promising. I think he’s going to make a decision very soon. I think he’s made his decision, it’s just that they’re waiting to hear it.

“One guy I speak to at West Ham who usually gets very good information, he’s been getting quite excited about this one. Over the past week, he started talking about it a lot more without me even really pushing him on it.”

So it finally seems like Moyes is going to get his man after 18 months of rumours, reports and negotiations.

Lingard’s arrival would further bolster Moyes’ attack, which could also include Armando Broja by the end of this week if reports are to be believed.

There is currently no indication of what personal terms will look like regarding any potential deal.
