90 mins exclusively revealed recently that Lingard is growing increasingly frustrated with United’s lack of movement to secure a deal with the Hammers.

however, Sky Sports now report that a deal has been reached between the two sides which will see the 28-year-old move to London Stadium until the end of the season.

Loan fees of £ 1.5million have been agreed while West Ham will pay Lingard’s full salary for the duration of the move. The England international is expected to undertake a medical visit to Manchester ahead of the move, with the club hoping to approve the change in time for him to make his Hammers debut at home in Liverpool on Sunday.

Lingard has struggled to make an impression on United’s first team this season and has yet to play a single minute of Premier League football this season – with four appearances as an unnamed substitute, the closest he is came to play in the league.

His only game this season has come in the FA Cup and Carabao Cup, with his three appearances resulting in just 179 minutes of first-team football.

Moyes previously worked with Lingard during his time as United manager in 2013/14, although the midfielder spent the majority of Moyes’ tenure on loan at the Birmingham City league side.

Lingard has made 210 appearances in all competitions for the Red Devils, scoring 33 goals and winning numerous medals after triumphs in the FA Cup, Carabao Cup, Community Shield and the Europa League.
