The Red Devils midfielder joined the Hammers on a loan deal in the January transfer window.

Jesse Lingard

failed to make a single appearance for

Manchester United

in their current Premier League campaign and accepted a loan offer from the

Hammers

in January. However, things have turned around for the 28-year-old in recent weeks. The English midfielder has scored four goals and provided two assists in his six appearances for West Ham as they sit fifth in the Premier League. The Hammers boss

David Moyes

hopes the club will make Lingard’s deal permanent at the end of the season

“I hope we’re going to be in a position to attract many players in the future, because of our league position, because we’re a club with stature, we’re in London, we have a 60,000-plus stadium which will be full every week. I think all those things go in our favour, ”

Moyes said.

“Jesse wanted to come here, right from the start. When I was talking to him he wanted to come to West Ham. He saw it as a really good place for him. I think he’ll have seen what we’re trying to do.

“He’s joined a good group of players as well. We’ve got international players and I’m hoping we can add to that in the coming transfer window. The job is to try to add to that.

“But I would hope Jesse sees this as a good place if it’s possible to be done, and if we think that we want to do it at the end of the season.”

West Ham are battling to secure a Champions League spot as they are only two points behind top-four rivals Chelsea. David Moyes' team will play against Manchester United in their next league match on Sunday.
