West Ham beat competition from Newcastle, West Brom and Sheffield United to sign the 28-year-old England international, who is desperate to play regular first time football after featuring in three matches for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s team this season.

United triggered a one-year extension in Lingard’s contract before Christmas that will keep him at the club until 2022, but he asked for permission to leave on loan.
