Jesse Lingard joins West Ham on loan from Manchester United | West Ham United

West Ham have completed the signing of Jesse Lingard from Manchester United on loan until the end of the season.

Lingard has fallen out of favor at Old Trafford this season and West Ham have reportedly agreed a £1.5m loan deal with United for the England midfielder.

Lingard told West Ham TV: “I’m excited. This is another new chapter in my life. Nothing is guaranteed but I came here to work hard and help the team and contribute my experience. This is the main objective. I just want to enjoy my football and get back to playing and getting back on the pitch.

Lingard previously worked with David Moyes at Old Trafford, although he didn’t make a first-team appearance during the Scot’s short tenure. “There were a lot of clubs involved but, for me personally, I felt it was the right decision. The club is going in the right direction. We are on the right path and I am here to help you.

“I obviously had a previous relationship with the manager and I’ve played with him before, so he knows my qualities and what I can bring to the team. I also know a few players – I know Dec very well (Rice ) on the English side – and I feel like I can really settle down here quickly.

West Ham, fourth in the Premier League, paved the way for Lingard’s arrival by converting Saïd Benrahma’s loan into a permanent transfer. Premier League clubs are entitled to two domestic loans at any given time. Moyes had borrowed Craig Dawson from Watford and Benrahma from Brentford.

West Ham paid a £5m loan fee to sign Benrahma last October and were expected to sign the Algerian for £20m plus a further £5m at the end of the season. This agreement has been proposed.

Moyes won’t stop his search for a striker if he signs Lingard. West Ham need cover for Michail Antonio after selling Sebastien Haller to Ajax. They are considering a loan move for Hwang Hee-chan from RB Leipzig.
