West Ham coach Pearce confirms interest remains for Man Utd outcast Lingard

West Ham coach Stuart Pearce admits they're still interested in signing Manchester United midfielder Jesse Lingard.

The Manchester United forward is into the final six months of his contract and, without a single Premier League start this season to his name, is expected to leave Old Trafford after more than 20 years of service.

"Jesse is a commodity that is not playing for his football club that would be a benefit to a lot of clubs in the Premier League, that would be my personal opinion. Our [club] is certainly one of them, there is no doubt," Pearce told talkSPORT

"Everyone is aware that we tried to get Jesse back again last summer and that will continue probably in this window as well but that is down to Jesse.

"Jesse has six months of his contract left, he will decide and Manchester Untied more importantly will decide what his future is for the next six months.

"Listen, I will be delighted if he goes and plays, wherever he goes and plays. If he turns up at West Ham over the next four days it will be utopia. If he goes and plays anywhere else in the Premier League I will still be pleased back seeing him play again."
