West Ham confident signing permanently Man Utd midfielder Jesse Lingard

West Ham are confident signing permanently Manchester United midfielder Jesse Lingard.

The Sun says Lingard has rediscovered the form that made him an England regular since arriving at the Hammers on-loan in January.

The star has produced four goals and two assists so far in his six matches for David Moyes' Champions League-chasing side.

And that has convinced his former United manager to try and secure his services long-term at the end of the campaign.

According to ExWHUemployee, speaking on the West Ham Way podcast, he insists the Hammers have a firm belief they can convince him to stay once the window re-opens.

It is also claimed he is loving life with the East London club.

His contract was due to expire in June but the Red Devils have already triggered their option of a 12-month extension.
