Ian Wright believes that Jesse Lingard can find himself again during his loan spell at

West Ham


The English midfielder is set to join West Ham on loan in the winter transfer window and will be with the Hammers until the end of the season. Lingard, who lost his way in Old Trafford, now just needs a fresh start. Reaching the first team from


Academy, he had a tumultuous period in this team, but under the leadership of Solskjaer, he was completely out of the team.

Wright now claims that being at West Ham could bring Lingard back to his good old days.

Wright told Wrighty’s House Podcast:

“I cannot stress enough how hard it is to get through that [United] academy."

“If it is West Ham then he’s going into a team that is playing with a lot of confidence. He’s going to play for West Ham, you do a couple of things right there and those fans are fantastic.

“I only went there for a little while, but they see that you’re committed and then you’re in. I can’t wait to see him play without the pressure of United on his shoulders.

"Twenty-eight in football, especially for him, he’s not injury-prone, we’re talking about someone who’s very fit. The only thing that is missing from Jesse Lingard to get back to where he was is confidence.

“Love him again, so we can see him dancing, doing his thing. A lot of what Jesse gets negativity coming towards him for… he’s got what Paul Pogba’s got. They’ve got a vibe, they’ve got swag, they’ve got sauce.”
