Jesse Lingard set for Nottingham Forest transfer over West Ham

West Ham United are said to be looking to miss the free transfer of Jesse Lingard, who has a medical appointment with Nottingham Forest.

The former Manchester United star reached the end of his contract at Old Trafford this summer, and it was highly likely that he would return to West Ham after a successful loan spell there in the 2020/21 season.

Now, however, Lingard appears to be heading towards a move to newly promoted Nottingham Forest instead, according to the Daily Mirror.

They state that Lingard’s future now looks set to be resolved imminently, with West Ham losing the opportunity to work with the England international once again.

“Negotiations are underway with Nottingham Forest, Jesse Lingard is fond of this possibility. Some MLS clubs have also approached him but his priority is the Premier League” Romano explained.

“Salary numbers are still not clear but the proposal is on the table, while West Ham are still in negotiations over Lingard but do not want to offer excessive net salaries; they were only signing him on their own terms. As for Tottenham, it has no interest despite some reports.

“I think the final decision now is very imminent.”
