Jesse Lingard: West Ham return for Manchester United winger was never close, says David Moyes

Manchester United winger Jesse Lingard, 28, scored nine goals in 16 matches for the Hammers while on loan last season; England international is yet to start for United this campaign, with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer keen to keep him at Old Trafford long-term.

However, despite speculation linking the winger with a return to the London Stadium, West Ham manager Moyes insisted Ole Gunnar Solskjaer never had any intention of selling Lingard.

“Ole made it quite clear to me early in the transfer window that he wanted to keep him,” said Moyes, whose side host United in the Premier League on Sunday.

“So I knew pretty early that he would be staying at Manchester United.

Solskjaer said earlier this week he wants to keep the United academy product at Old Trafford long-term, with his contract due to expire at the end of the season.
