West Ham remain interested in bringing Jesse Lingard back to London Stadium this summer, 90min understands.

Lingard is out of contract at Manchester United this summer and, barring a remarkable U-turn, will leave Old Trafford after being associated with the club for more than 20 years.

Newcastle had appeared to be red-hot favourites to sign Lingard this summer, but the Magpies have baulked at his hefty wage demands - which sources have told 90min are comparable to the wages being taken home by Kieran Trippier, their highest earner.

As it stands, Newcastle have backed away from the negotiating table, and 90min understands that West Ham - at the behest of manager David Moyes - are back in touch with Lingard's representatives about a return to the Hammers.
