Man Utd attacker Lingard fancies Newcastle move - but will wait for Ten Hag

Manchester United midfielder Jesse Lingard is open to a move to Newcastle.

Lingard is out of contract at the end of a season in which he has started only three times in the Premier League.

The attacker has been linked with Newcastle and West Ham, where he had an impressive loan spell during the 2020/21 season that included nine goals and five assists in 16 appearances under former United boss David Moyes.

A source told The Sun: "Jesse hasn't been happy this season. He feels let down that he hasn't played as much as he wanted and feels promises made to him when he came back from West Ham haven't been kept.

"He was resigned to the idea that he was going to leave and make a fresh start at another club.

"But Ten Hag has let it be known he wants to speak with him and if he gives him the assurances he needs, Jesse could be persuaded to stay. United is his club and he's never wanted to leave.

"Jesse likes the look of Eddie Howe and a move to Newcastle would give him the chance to stay closer to his family in the north-west, which is important to him."
