West Ham United manager David Moyes has now signed off on another new transfer at the London Stadium after news emerged on the free transfer of Jesse Lingard.

According to Daily Mail journalist Simon Jones, writing on Monday 4 September, the East Londoners are set to offer a short-term incentivised to the former Manchester United and Nottingham Forest star during the international break.

Jones said in his Transfer Confidential on Monday that the former Lingard will most likely return to the London Stadium for a second period after impressing during his time training with the Irons.

Moyes is looking to bolster his attacking options after failing to buy a striker before the transfer deadline, and this revelation comes after it was revealed on deadline day that he wasn’t set to get a contract because he hadn’t reached the required level, with Moyes yet to decide on his fate.

Lingard remains hopeful of impressing the Scottish manager, according to The Athletic, and that the 30-year-old “could sign at any time” as a free agent, as he continues to train with the club to improve his fitness after playing only four times for Nottingham Forest in 2023.


The England international had a difficult time in the Midlands, failing to demonstrate why Forest paid him so much.

Lingard’s future effect in the Premier League has been called into question, with a move somewhere more plausible than another English top-flight venture, and it was claimed on 2 September that the former Old Trafford academy graduate was in discussions with DC United.


However, it appears that Moyes has sanctioned another fresh transfer in East London after successfully completing deals for Mohammed Kudus, Edson Alvarez, James Ward-Prowse, and Konstantinos Mavropanos.

With a return to the London Stadium now on the cards, Lingard appears to be the ideal bet for West Ham, who need additional offensive options ahead of their Europa League adventure this month.


Moyes and the club board have certainly handled the Lingard saga with care and consideration after providing him with the resources to regain his fitness, having trained with the first team throughout the summer, and it would not have been a quick decision to include him in the team given his recent struggles.


However, with Jones’ newest development, it appears like West Ham United have made a decision, which may turn out to be the correct one.

Lingard, a driven and motivated player, has shown to be one of the most entertaining and effective players in the Premier League, as evidenced by his 14 goal contributions in only 16 league games at the London Stadium during the 2020/21 season.


Whether Lingard can reach those levels again remains to be known, but Moyes knows him well and vice versa, and the London Stadium remains the perfect place for the 30-year-old to rediscover himself. A fantastic opportunity for all parties concerned.
