Jesse Lingard remains determined to leave Manchester United in January, despite the sacking of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
The Daily Mail says an improvement in their game-time and playing prospects under a permanent manager would then leave many of those players who were previously eyeing the exit, ready to reconsider their own plans. Lingard, though, is understood to be unmoved by the change of manager.
Lingard, who is out of contract next summer, is among a group of United players who feel they were misled by Solskjaer over the amount of playing time they would receive.
The 28 year-old has made just one Premier League start all season, his lack of action cost him his place in the latest England squad and he is desperate to play regularly ahead of next year’s World Cup.
Lingard has significant interest in England and abroad though suggestions he is already planning for a move to West Ham, where he enjoyed a successful half-season loan spell last term, have been played down.
