Following Manchester United’s 2-0 defeat to Manchester City on Saturday, a Manchester United player has made the decision to leave the club in January.

According to Eurosport via Metro, Jesse Lingard has made the decision to leave Manchester United in January after he watched on from the bench as United were beaten 2-0 by arch-rivals Manchester City on Saturday.

Lingard has played just 63 minutes of Premier League football this season and is unhappy with the amount of game time he has received under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

West Ham expressed interest in signing Lingard on a permanent deal last summer after he impressed while on loan with West Ham but United blocked his exit.

Lingard was happy with the club’s decision as he hoped to revive his Old Trafford career and get back into Gareth Southgate’s England squad, but that has failed to materialise.

Lingard’s Manchester United contract expires at the end of the season and with the player reluctant to extend his contract, the Red Devils may decide to cash in on him in January before losing him on a free transfer.
