Newcastle up offer to Man Utd for Lingard

Newcastle United have launched a new loan attempt for Manchester United midfielder Jesse Lingard.

The Daily Mail says Newcastle have returned with a second loan offer for Lingard.

Sources say the situation is complicated by United preferring to sell the player this month, given his contract expires in the summer.

However, while Lingard is keen on a move to St James’ Park, he would only consider joining on loan.

That means Newcastle will almost certainly have to pay a sizeable loan fee to satisfy both United and the England forward, who wants to keep his options open.

The Magpies are said to be ‘optimistic’ about their chances of landing the 29-year-old, after seeing an initial loan offer rejected on Wednesday. United sources, however, still expect him to remain at Old Trafford.
