David Moyes: Jesse Lingard return was never close

David Moyes revealed that Jesse Lingard was never close to a return to West Ham during the summer transfer window. Lingard was on loan at West Ham last season where he scored nine goals from 16 appearances. His brilliant form earned him a call up to the England provisional squad for Euro 2020. He was linked to a permanent move to the London stadium but Moyes revealed that Man United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer had no intention of selling him.

“Ole made it quite clear to me early in the transfer window that he wanted to keep him,” West Ham boss David Moyes said about Jesse Lingard. “So I knew pretty early that he would be staying at Manchester United. I was hearing all the stuff but I had a private conversation with Ole who made it clear he was staying.”

“I can’t talk about players at other clubs because that’s not the way we do it,” he said when asked about a possible return of Lingard during the transfer window. “But because Jesse was part of our club for a while, I think all I can say is that he made a massive contribution to the team, both on the pitch and off the pitch. We really enjoyed having him.”

“I hope in many ways Jesse will look at that time and how well the players treated him and made him welcome. So it may change,” he added. “He was great for us. But simply the manager told me he was keeping him and when that happens, I believe the manager – and that’s the way it went.”
