Jesse Lingard turned down huge offers to join Nottingham Forest

Jesse Lingard has joined Nottingham Forest on a one-year deal.

The Manchester United academy graduate hardly featured for the Red Devils in the past two seasons.

His contract expired this summer and was linked with a move to West Ham where he spent a six-month loan during the 2020/21 campaign.

But newly-promoted Nottingham Forest came in last minute to facilitate a move for the 29-year-old.

Lingard further went on to explain that this move was right for him and his family.

“I could have gone abroad for a lot of money but I want to stay in the Premier League,” Lingard told BBC Radio 5 Live. 

“They wanted to come to my house and bring me to London in quick succession to try to get the deal done.

“The manager and owners have been great with me. They’ve shown the love and intent to get me to the club.

“When I see that sort of love, of course I am going to say yes. But it had to be the right deal for me and my family.

“I can see the project they’re building and it’s going to look good this season. I feel a positive vibe around the camp.”
