Jesse Lingard is set for talks with the club this summer in a bid to resolve his future, according to reports. The midfielder enjoyed an extraordinary comeback story on loan at West Ham this season and has reportedly attracted the interest of other clubs.
Lingard scored nine goals and assisted a further four in his brief spell with West Ham and could now be looking to take the next step in his career. The 28-year-old has just one year remaining on his contract and will be free to negotiate a pre-contract with foreign clubs as early as January next year.
According to the Daily Mail, Lingard will seek talks with the club during pre-season preparations, with no talks between the club and Lingard’s camp planned before then.
The publication claims that a decision on Lingard’s future will not be made until the start of next month at the earliest, with interested clubs made to wait for a potential move.
Despite interest from other clubs, it is also claimed that Lingard’s successful loan spell could mean that Solskjaer reinstates the midfielder into his first-team plans, rather than moving him on.
