Man United not interested in loaning out in-demand midfielder

Despite falling majorly outside of manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s first-team plans, according to recent reports, Manchester United have ‘little interest’ in allowing midfielder Jesse Lingard to leave the club on loan.

That’s according to a recent report from the Daily Mail, who claims Lingard, who is wanted back at West Ham United following a short-term loan last season, is not expected to be allowed to rejoin the Hammers on loan.

It has been widely reported that David Moyes’ side would love to welcome Lingard back to East London following a hugely impressive spell during the second half of last season.

Jesse Lingard (right) helped guide West Ham United to an unlikely sixth-place Premier League finish last season.

After joining the Hammers in January, the United midfielder managed to rack up a hugely impressive nine goals and five assists in just 16 appearances, in all competitions.

However, with his contract set to expire this time next year, the Red Devils’ hierarchy is reluctant to see the 28-year-old move this summer on loan and would instead rather West Ham United meet their £25m transfer demands.
