Manchester United have confirmed yet another first-team departure just days before the transfer window closes.

Attacking midfielder Jesse Lingard will spend the rest of the season on loan at fellow Premier League side West Ham United.

Lingard has only made three appearances for the Red Devils this season, and will now look to get some regular minutes under former United manager David Moyes.

“I’m excited," Lingard told West Ham TV.

"It’s another new chapter in my life. Nothing is guaranteed but I’ve come here to work hard and help the team and bring my experience. That’s the main aim. I just want to enjoy my football and get back playing again and get my feet back on the pitch.

“There were lots of clubs involved but, for me personally, I felt this was the right move. I’ve obviously had a previous relationship with the manager as he was at Man U and I’ve played under him before, so he knows my qualities and what I can bring to the team. I know a couple of the players as well – I know Dec [Rice] very well from the England side – and I feel I can really settle in here quickly.”
