What did Moyes say?
Moyes told reporters ahead of the London derby against [team 19], “We have not thought about that really, we have not taken it any further at the moment.”
“We have him on loan and he is doing a good job for us just now, I think we will discuss that and probably look at it at the end of the season.”
“But it is not something that we have taken any further than the situation we are in just now.
“He has looked very good this week and I think since he came in everybody has been a bit surprised with how good his fitness is, how good his all-round game is.
“I can see by the way he is working he is even getting better, his physical data has got better and overall he has been very good for us.
“He has helped us and given us another string to our bow and given us more attacking options, so we are really pleased with him.”
Lingard at West Ham United
After being frustrated for not getting game time, [player 820] finally looks at this best at [team 1]. Since moving to west London, Lingard has been excellent for the Hammers. A big reason behind this is that he is being deployed in his favoured role – attacking midfield position behind the striker.
[coach 455355] has used him well by deploying [player 5273] and [player 80655] behind him. However, Souchek constantly makes powerful offensive runs into the box. Rice stays deep, and his game reading and defensive abilities allow Souchek and Lingard to play higher up the pitch with more freedom.
With the hard-working and pacy upfront in [player 1922], Lingard has had a significant influence on West Ham’s attacking dynamic. His selfless movements allow wide players like [player 1592] to get into goal scoring positions.
His finishing has been superb as well. The 28-year-old has scored 5 goals in 7 [league 8] appearances. Besides, he has also provided 2 assists. Those outstanding numbers and performances have helped him to earn his first [team 18645] call up since June 2019.
Should he stay at West Ham?
West Ham have had an incredible season and could finish into the top four. Moyes has got a young and talented squad buying into his ideas and replicating them brilliantly on the pitch. Only next season will tell us if this was a one-season thing or Moyes is working his magic again.
It seems unlikely for Lingard to get formidable game time at [team 14] as they have got [player 129602] and [player 1992], who [coach 524307] prefers over Lingard. Besides, Manchester United also look set to make moves for the likes of [player 538034] and [player 1116]. This further explains Lingard’s future with the red devils.
After considering all the factors, it seems like staying at West Ham is in the best interests of all parties involved. Man United will get the money for Lingard to help them buy their transfer targets. Meanwhile, West Ham will get a proven Premier League player in his prime years.
