Fri 29 January 2021 | 23:05

Lingard is excited about having joined David Moyes' side for the rest of the season.


Ole Gunnar Solskjaer

expected a busy second half of the campaign and preferred not to send away any players,

Jesse Lingard

will join

West Ham

for the rest of the season.

He showed a great display when he would perform in

Manchester United

. He has been present in 210 appearances since he joined this club.

The 28-year-old expressed his excitement from the new door opened to his career life and said: 

"I’m excited. It’s another new chapter in my life. Nothing is guaranteed but I’ve come here to work hard and help the team and bring my experience. That’s the main aim. I just want to enjoy my football and get back playing again and get my feet back on the pitch.

"There were lots of clubs involved but, for me personally, I felt this was the right move. I’ve obviously had a previous relationship with the manager as he was at Man Utd and I’ve played under him before, so he knows my qualities and what I can bring to the team.

"I know a couple of the players as well – I know Dec [Rice] very well from the England side – and I feel I can really settle in here quickly."

He will be reunited with his former boss of Manchester United,

David Moyes

. He also talked about the kind of relationship that Moyes and his players have. He said: 

"It’s important that a player and manager have a good relationship. [Moyes has] got really good morals, he gets his team working hard and I’ve had a chat with him already and there are no guarantees – it’s down to me to put the work in and put the graft in, to get into the team and play well week-in, week-out."

He will not be allowed to play against Manchester United in the FA Cup fifth-round match.
