Sky Sports says the England midfielder's representatives were present at St James' Park on Sunday for Newcastle's first game since their £300million Saudi takeover.
A picture posted on Instagram Stories via Lingard's 'JLingz' account showed Newcastle's pitch shortly before their 3-2 defeat to Nuno Espirito Santo's side.
And it's reckoned Lingard's representatives were in attendance to 'keep an eye' on proceedings.
Sky's Pete Graves tweeted: “Interesting to see this pop up on Jesse Lingard's 'jlingz' account on Instagram.
“I understand Lingard's representatives were at St James' Park yesterday keeping an eye on developments at NUFC."
Lingard's current deal runs to June.
