England international midfielder Jesse Lingard has been left angered by Manchester United as his immediate future continues to be delayed as the January window approaches its final days.
As reported by The Telegraph's James Ducker, Lingard is angry that United has stood in the way of his opportunity of securing a loan to Premier League outfit Newcastle United before the window slams shut as he continues to search for first-team minutes.
Lingard remains on the outs at Old Trafford despite spending the last 20-years at the club since he began in the youth ranks and now is said to feel disrespected by United while wanting the club to immediately greenlight a move to St. James' Park before his chance goes missing.
The Red Devils hierarchy has refused to allow him to leave on loan to both West Ham and Tottenham given the dogfight the trio of clubs are in for the final valuable Champions League spot in the table, but that position remains one that has left Lingard 'greatly frustrated' at the club's resistance to secure a loan move for him.
Long-term move to Newcastle is not out of the question for Lingard
Should Jesse Lingard secure a move to Newcastle before the window closes in less than a week, it is not out of the realm of possibility that the England man could seek a full move to the club after his loan period concludes at the end of the season.
Newcastle remains in desperate need of attacking reinforcements under Eddie Howe after already securing deals for both Chris Wood and Kieran Trippier earlier in the window, but can still only count on Allan Saint-Maximin as the only other reliable forward option after key striker Callum Wilson went down injured.
The addition of Lingard, a player who already showed his quality during a highly-successful loan at West Ham last season, would offer both technical and tactical plus points as well as a player capable of adding goals and creativity to a side desperate for both.
