Ole Gunner Solskjaer has played down speculations of Jesse Lingard leaving Manchester United

Jesse Lingard has been in fine form following a loan move to West Ham United in January with many reports indicating the English international could end up leaving Manchester United this summer.

However, Solskjaer has played down all those talks and was full of praise for Jesse Lingard insisting he will be delighted to welcome him back at Old Trafford at the end of the season.

Jesse Lingard has eight goals in his first eight games for West Ham

“Jesse has been brilliant since he left,” Solskjaer added. “We could have kept him, he has always got a part to play. Man United through and through, never caused me a problem.

“He deserved a chance to play more football, that is why we let him go to West Ham. We would welcome him back, we hope he will go to the Euros. I hope he has strong finish to the league.”

The 28-year-old has netted 8 goals in his first eight Premier League games for West Ham and is determined to play for the Three Lions in the Euro 2020.
