Aston Villa to rival West Ham for Man Utd midfielder Lingard

Aston Villa are ready to rival West Ham United for Jesse Lingard.

The Manchester United attacking midfielder is enjoying a fruitful loan spell with West Ham.

In 10 appearances for the Hammers, Lingard has conjured up a remarkable return of nine goals and four assists.

West Ham are keen to make the deal permanent, but they are not alone.

Football Insider says Dean Smith views Lingard as a 'Villa-type player' and wants to pursue a deal this summer.

Villa are keeping tabs on the situation as it is still not clear if United will sell the 28-year-old.
