Update: Lingard passes West Ham medical

Jesse Lingard has passed his medical at West Ham, ahead of a loan move from Manchester United for the remainder of the season.

Lingard would have needed to have been registered by midday on Friday to make his debut against Liverpool on Sunday, which is a possibility with his medical now complete.

Lingard has fallen down the pecking order at Old Trafford, failing to make a Premier League appearance this season, and has been looking to secure a move away to get more first-team minutes.

It is understood Newcastle and West Brom approached Lingard’s representatives about taking the out-of-favor England international on loan, but the 28-year-old rejected their offers.

The total cost of a potential deal is thought to be more than £3m, taking into account the loan fee and Lingard’s wages.

United triggered a one-year extension on Lingard’s contract, which now runs until the summer of 2022, to protect his value ahead of a potential transfer.
