Lingard is on loan at West Ham from Manchester United where he has seen a return to form.

The 28-year-old had been enjoying life in London following a return to form after being ostracised by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer at Old Trafford.

Nine goals in 16 Premier League appearances have earned him a recall to the England set-up under Gareth Southgate.

The midfielder is also part of the 33-man provisional squad with the Three Lions ahead of the European Championships this summer.

His future remains up in the air, though, with West Ham desperate to keep hold of his services.

However, with United expected to demand a hefty fee, the chances of the Hammers signing Lingard on a permanent deal looks slim.
