Manchester United Attacking Midfielder Jesse Lingard is closing on a permanent move to Premier League rivals Newcastle United. The English star had earlier been linked with a move out of the club since Ralf Rangnick took over as the interim manager for Manchester United. Lingard has spent most of his playing time on the bench, something that prompted his wish for a transfer away from Old Trafford.
Newcastle United had earlier contacted Manchester for the player as they sought to sign him on loan but unfortunately their first quest for the player was turned down by the club. However, their second attempt to sign the player seems to have gone through as Lingard is expected to strike a long term deal with the Magpies as he joins the likes of Kieran Trippier at the club as new recruits.
The Magpies will however be forced to pay huge sums of money for the player as Lingard is set to complete the transfer to Newcastle United in the coming days. Both clubs have reached a conclusive agreement and it's just a matter of time for Lingard to undergo his medicals ahead of permanent move to Newcastle United.
