Manchester United forward Jesse Lingard could snub a free move to Tottenham at the end of the season as he would apparently prefer to move abroad. The England international looks set to leave Old Trafford when his contract expires this summer.

Lingard has made 226 appearances for the Red Devils and was once a regular in the starting line-up.

But with United possessing an embarrassment of riches in attack, he has found his game time limited in recent years.

Last season he was shipped out to West Ham on loan for the second half of the season.

And his move coincided with a purple patch of form as he scored nine goals and provided five assists in 16 matches for the Hammers.

The 29-year-old reportedly turned down a permanent move to the London Stadium after being given assurances by former United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer that he would be given more opportunities during this campaign.

But Lingard has been a peripheral figure once again at Old Trafford this season.
