West Ham boss, David Moyes, is delighted with the impact of Manchester United loan signing Jesse Lingard, describing him as a ‘valuable investment’ to the club.
He wrote for the London Evening Standard: “Jesse Lingard is the most recent of those acquisitions. We always try and do as much homework as possible on the players we want to bring to the club and I knew Jesse from my time at Manchester United.
“First and foremost, his character and attitude to the game is good and maybe he has a bit to prove. He’s always had good energy levels and a good work-rate and that’s something I always remembered.
“He’s scored some fine goals for Manchester United, he’s become an England international, had a good career and he still has a long way to go. He has an opportunity to show what he is – and what he can be.
“Jesse has also given our players a lift. When you are trying to improve clubs the squad needs to see that the players who come in will help them. I believe he has demonstrated that after just three games so far.”
