Jesse Lingard wants ‘regular football’ wherever he plays.
The 28-year old midfielder was sent out on loan in the January transfer window to West Ham.
He starred for West Ham in the winter period scoring nine goals in 16 games for the Hammers that earned him a recall to the England squad.
He will most likely leave Old Trafford in the summer permanently and believes regular first-team football is now more important to him than anything else.

Lingard outlined: ‘Regular football is the most important thing for me.
‘After going on loan and getting a good run in the team, you started to see the real me, with the goals and the assists.
‘I’ve never doubted my ability, I’ve always believed in myself. I spoke to the manager (Ole Gunnar Solskjaer) in pre-season and said, “I need game time”.
‘He said, “we can discuss it December time”, and we spoke again and he agreed to let me go on loan.
‘I had various conversations with him during my time at West Ham. He was very supportive and it was a great loan for me.’
