Sky Sports: Newcastle have loan bid ‘rejected’ as player decides to join West Ham instead

Jesse Lingard has REJECTED an offer to join Newcastle until the end of the season, with Sky Sports revealing that he’s opted for a loan move to West Ham instead.

The 28-year-old hasn’t featured in the Premier League for Man Utd since July, making just three appearances in all competitions this season after falling way down the pecking under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

The report states that the total cost of the move is over £3m when factoring in both the loan fee and Lingard’s wages.

Here’s a snippet from Sky Sports piece, confirming both Bruce and West Brom’s Sam Allardyce had offers knocked back:

West Ham have agreed a deal to take Manchester United midfielder Jesse Lingard on loan for the remainder of the season.

It is understood Newcastle and West Brom approached Lingard’s representatives about taking the out-of-favour England international on loan, but the 28-year-old rejected their offers.

Lingard could’ve given us another option in attack, but he’s barely kicked a ball this season and doesn’t strike me as a character ready to throw himself into a relegation fight.

I’d also argue that the signing of a box-to-box midfielder, full-back or striker is more important right now – although this ‘offer’ suggests we’re looking to an another No 10 to our ranks.

Not one we’ll be losing sleep over, although time is running out for Steve Bruce to improve his squad, with no new signings in as things stand as we edge closer to Monday’s 11pm deadline.

  1. You can’t blame him why join a club in a relegation battle and with a manager who doesn’t have a clue with regards to what his best team is

  2. Yep. Not up for the scrap, just wants to collect a comfy paycheck and play on occasion.

    We need a 6 or an 8 more than anything else if we want a starting player. The rest of the starting xi is a no-brainer.
