Manchester United legend Gary Neville has said that he is disappointed with Jesse Lingard‘s decision to stay at the club.
The attacker had a promising loan spell at West Ham United earlier this year, bagging nine goals and five assists.
He was fancied to make a permanent return, but a deal did not materialise before the summer transfer deadline.
United were holding out for around £25 million. The Hammers were reluctant to pay anything more than £15m for him.
Lingard has 10 months remaining on his contract with United, and he could be fancied to sign a short-term extension.
While he was open to a new challenge this summer, he did not push for an exit and was happy to stay with the club.
It remains to be seen whether Lingard can reclaim a regular starting role.
