Football: Lingard Linked with Summer Spurs Switch, Are Leeds Involved?

Tottenham have spoken to Manchester United and England midfielder Jesse Lingard’s camp about a potential move this summer.

The 29-year-old is out of contract at Old Trafford at the end of the season.

Lingard’s United future remains uncertain given his lack of appearances in the 2021-22 campaign.

He was restricted to just four minutes as a substitute during Monday’s FA Cup third-round victory over Aston Villa at Old Trafford.

The England international is yet to start a Premier League game this season but it is understood Lingard has no intention of leaving United during this month’s transfer window.

Unibet are offering odds of 3/10 for Lingard to remain at Old Trafford in January, but a leftfield bet could be on him joining Leeds United, who are desperate for midfield reinforcements this month.

A loan switch to Elland Road could suit all parties and you can get odds of 25/1 BetVictor for such a move.

It has been a major disappointment for Lingard, who was persuaded to remain at Old Trafford in the summer by former boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer on the basis he would get more opportunities.
