Digimagaz.com – West Ham United’s Jesse Lingard has been granted an extended opportunity to secure a short-term contract with the club, according to statements made by manager David Moyes.
Moyes, addressing the ongoing speculation surrounding Lingard’s future, emphasized that no decisions regarding a contract have been made yet. “We’ve not even considered a deal at the moment,” stated Moyes. He further elaborated, “He’s in training to see if we can get him back fit and get him in decent condition.”
Lingard, who had an impressive loan spell with West Ham during the latter half of the 2020-2021 season, has been the subject of intense transfer speculation throughout the summer. Moyes, however, has made it clear that Lingard will be given more time to prove his worth to the team.
“He’ll be back here next week as well. There’s no news on that as far as short-term deals or anything else,” Moyes affirmed. While acknowledging Lingard’s talent, Moyes stressed the importance of physical readiness. “Jesse’s a good player, probably needing to get himself in the correct condition. We’re working on him, all players tend to need four or five weeks pre-season and Jesse’s no different from anybody else.”
The manager’s comments suggest that Lingard’s immediate future with West Ham hinges on his ability to reach the desired level of fitness and performance. As the clock ticks down to the start of the new season, Lingard will have one more week to impress the coaching staff and stake his claim for a place in the squad.
With West Ham supporters eager to see Lingard back in the claret and blue, the coming week presents a pivotal period for both the player and the club. Lingard’s potential reintegration into the team could add depth and dynamism to West Ham’s midfield, further fueling hopes for a successful campaign ahead. As the football world watches with anticipation, all eyes will be on Lingard’s progress in the days to come.
