Although Solskjaer was not completely satisfied with giving away the 28-year-old midfielder, he gave permission to let Lingard go on a loan.

Jessie Lingard

, the 28-year-old

Manchester United

midfielder, had caught the interest of many clubs such as

West Brom


Sheffield United

, was finally permitted to go on a loan to

West Ham


However, talks are still going on and the attacking midfielder does not know where he will be playing for the rest of the campaign.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer

, although seemed reluctant to give up on Lingard, said:

"Jesse trained this morning, he wasn’t in the squad. So, of course, he wants to play football, we will have to see and I will sit down with Jesse and make a decision on what we're going to do.

"So far, he’s been the ultimate professional, trained well with a small group this morning that were not in the squad. I will sit down and see if anything comes up. I'm very happy to have him around us as I know he could have played today and done well."

The midfielder was however seeking an exit as he got a limited playing time in this season. He has already played at Old Trafford more than 200 times.

Many outgoings such as Sergio Romero and Marcos Rojo are expected till the end of the transfer window.
