Jesse Lingard set to return to West Ham?

Jesse Lingard was seen training in West Ham kit and it is been said that he is set to join the side as a free agent.

Jesse Lingard was recently spotted training in a West Ham United kit, sparking speculation that the talented midfielder is on the verge of joining the Hammers as a free agent again. Lingard’s journey over the past year has been good, as he spent the previous season at Nottingham Forest, only to find himself without a club this summer.

The English midfielder, who is known for his dynamic playing style and creative play, had a spell at Nottingham Forest during the 2022-2023 season. Lingard’s time at the City Ground was marked by flashes of brilliance, where he displayed his ability to influence games with his vision, passing, and goal-scoring ability. However, his contract with Forest has since expired, making him a free agent in the summer transfer window.

The sight of Lingard wearing a West Ham kit during a training session means he is set to join them again. The move would mark a return for Lingard to the London Stadium, where he had a highly successful loan spell during the second half of the 2020-2021 Premier League season. During that time, he became an integral part of David Moyes’ squad, contributing with vital goals and assists, helping the Hammers secure a Europa League spot.
