Steven Gerrard to decide future of free agent Jesse Lingard

An update on the future of free agent midfielder Jesse Lingard has been confirmed late on Friday evening.

The subject of England international Lingard’s plans for the season ahead have of course long proven something of a mystery.

This comes with the one-time Manchester United man having been released by Nottingham Forest.

For the last month, Lingard has been training with West Ham United, with the expectation, in turn, having been that the 30-year-old would ultimately put pen to paper on terms with David Moyes’ side after enjoying such success in Irons colours back in 2021.

As alluded to above, though, on Friday, a fresh twist in the tale has been confirmed.

As confirmed by transfer expert Fabrizio Romano, Lingard has put pen to paper on a one-month deal with Al-Ettifaq, which will allow him to train with the Saudi Pro League side.

Should Lingard ultimately be handed a permanent deal, he will join forces with the likes of Jordan Henderson and Georginio Wijnaldum in a star-studded Al-Ettifaq midfield.
