West Ham only need a draw against Southampton to secure a sixth-placed Europa League spot and David Moyes hopes that he could bring Jesse Lingard in permanently.

Manchester United


Jesse Lingard

has been able to score nine goals since he joined

West Ham

in the summer.

His loan is going to expire at the end of the season and Hammers boss

David Moyes

hopes that he could bring him in permanently, however, Manchester United have not given any indication as to whether Lingard has a future with them, according to

Sky Sports


"I couldn't say any more than I'm hopeful Jesse might want to come here, that's up to Manchester United, but he's been a positive signing,” Moyes said.

Moyes is going to make a late call on goalkeeper

Lukasz Fabianski

, who suffered from a knee injury during the warm-up before their Wednesday’s 3-1 win over West Brom.

"We don't know about Fabianski yet, it will be a last-minute call on Sunday," said Moyes.

Midfield duo

Mark Noble


Manuel Lanzini

are also likely to miss out again.

West Ham need only a draw in the game against Southampton on Sunday in order to seal a sixth-placed Europa League spot.

The club have been able to turn around things as they were only just clear of relegation 12 months ago.

Moyes added:

"It's great - especially with the situation we're in as well.

"We're bringing them (fans) back here with a positive team who have played well and who've put in some brilliant performances and effort throughout the season.

"So I think it's fitting that the players get a chance to be cheered because they deserve to be because of the way they have performed all season.

"We have equaled the club points record and we have a chance to beat that and also get European football so I am really hopeful that we can get there.

"But I am not taking anything for granted. It has been a big achievement getting to where we are."
