Jesse Lingard’s brother drops hint over Man Utd loanee and West Ham ace’s future
Jesse Lingard may turn his loan move at West Ham into a permanent one, if his brother’s social media post is anything to go by.
The Manchester United loanee has impressed since heading to east London in January, scoring four goals in just six games for the Hammers so far.
United triggered a one-year extension on Lingard’s contract in December, meaning he could stay at Old Trafford until 2022.
Though West Ham may look to tempt the Red Devils into selling this summer, given Lingard’s fine form under David Moyes.
And the 28-year-old’s brother, Louie Scott, has hinted that Lingard’s future could well be in the capital.
A picture of Louie in the gym, in West Ham training gear, was posted on Instagram and captioned: “New home? COYI”.
Lingard hadn’t played in the Premier League this season before heading to West Ham.
“At this age, it's all about regular football and showing people what you can do,” Lingard said.
“First and foremost I'm here to play, win and help the team, so hopefully I can do that and we'll see where we're at come the end of the season.
“But it's about playing with a smile on my face and enjoying my football and getting back to the old Jesse.
“Football is a lot of ups and downs, people go through different stages and it's not just a straight road to the top. There are a lot of setbacks which most people don't see and a lot of things that go on behind closed doors.
“During the lockdown I recapped my best moments playing football – the season under Jose (Mourinho) where I scored all of those goals and went to the World Cup and the season when Ole came in and I started well.

“So I started recapping a lot of games to see where I did well, getting that fire in my belly and drive again to go and kick on because it would have been easy for me to fall off and take the easy option out. But a person like me who's been through a lot and knows the game, I can't just give it up and I'll always go out with a fight.”
