Newcastle end their pursuit to sign of Man United’s Jesse Lingard

"Screaming" - West Ham captain accuses Lingard for acting differently at Man United

Newcastle United have reportedly ended their quest for England internal Jesse Lingard because of his monetary requests being too high to even think about squeezing into the club’s wage structure.

The Magpies were frantic to sign the 29-year-old loan during the January move window, however would not pay the £16million credit charge requested by Manchester United.

Lingard was, notwithstanding, compelled to stay at United where he seldom featured – hence it was normal that Newcastle boss Eddie Howe would revive his advantage in the attacking midfielder this mid year on a free move.

It now appears unlikely that Lingard will join after pricing himself out of a move to the North East with wage demands in excess of £150,000-a-week, plus a huge signing-on fee, according to The Telegraph.

The report also states making Lingard the club’s highest paid player, when he will also turn 30 before the end of this year, is not as attractive to Newcastle as the loan move in January had been.
