West Ham have agreed a deal to sign Manchester United forward Jesse Lingard on loan for the rest of the season.
According to SkySports, Lingard is expected to have his medical in Manchester before travelling to London to complete the move.
If the deal is completed and Lingard is registered by midday, he will be available to make his debut against Liverpool on Sunday.
The total cost of a potential deal is thought to be more than £3m, taking into account the loan fee and Lingard’s wages.
Lingard has only made two starts for United this season, which has led to his desire to leave to pursue more regular playing time.
“Jesse trained this morning, he wasn’t in the squad,” Solskjaer said after Lingard was left out of the FA Cup squad to face Liverpool at the weekend. “So, of course, he wants to play football, we will have to see and I will sit down with Jesse and make a decision on what we’re going to do.
“So far, he’s been the ultimate professional, trained well with a small group this morning that were not in squad. I will sit down and see if anything comes up. I’m very happy to have him around us as I know he could have played today and done well.”
Lingard has made over 200 appearances for the Red Devils, having joined when he was just seven years old.
