Brighton boss Potter: Lingard best loan signing of season

Brighton boss Graham Potter is full of praise for West Ham midfielder Jesse Lingard.

The Manchester United loanee spent time with the Seagulls earlier in his career. In his 15 appearances for Albion, he scored three goals and got four assists, and helped them to reach the play-offs.

Potter said: “Yes (best loan signing of the season), he must be up there, mustn't he.

“He has had a tremendous impact and it is good for him, it just goes to show it is not how you handle the good times, it is how you handle the bad times.

“Jesse has had a frustrating period of his career but is now enjoying playing and helping his team.

“It is another example of what it is to be a top professional and deal with setbacks and when the opportunity is there you are ready to play so credit to him for that."
