Jesse Lingard completes medical at Premier League club after leaving Manchester United

Posted by

Jesse Lingard has completed his medical at newly promoted Premier League club Nottingham Forest after leaving Manchester United.

Lingard recently left Manchester United after his contract expired. The England international spent his whole career at his boyhood club, barring a few loan spells.

His most recent loan spell was with West Ham, where he proved he still has the ability to compete in the Premier League, despite struggling for minutes at Manchester United.

The London club were keen on signing him this summer, according to The Guardian, but the report now claims that Nottingham Forest are closing in on a deal worth in the region of £200,000 a week.

The 29-year-old has completed his medical at the newly promoted club, and is expected to complete his move in the coming days.

Despite his undoubted talent, the wages Nottingham Forest are offering him seem excessive.

After recently coming up from the Championship, many of their players will be on significantly less than that, which could cause disruption in the dressing room.

However, if Lingard hits the ground running and helps Forest stay in the league, then all will be forgotten.

  1. Was unsure about this at first – prima donna, dressing room harmony and all that, but he’s an excellent proven goal scorer and could be exactly the type of player the other lads can learn from. I’d love to see us sign MGW and say to him “Morgan, learn from this guy – we’ve got him for one season”.

    1. Why would MGW want to join your band of no hopers. £200000pw for a has been. I bet Cloughie is turning in his grave. You are going down. COYW

  2. I appreciate the concerns about morale in the dressing room BUT this signifies ambition and commitment from the owner and club management. Dane Murphy isn’t one to spend lavishly. I will trust the organization’s wisdom and hope that JL motivates all to up their game and stamp their identity in the PL.

  3. Can’t rap my head around this, Lingard prefers to sign a one year contract at $200 thousand a week instead of signing a multi year contract at WestHam for $150 thousand a week. Just doesn’t make any sense.
