Former Rangers striker Ally McCoist has urged Manchester United star Jesse Lingard to join Newcastle United this summer.
Lingard is expected to leave Manchester United at the end of the season when his contract with the club expires.
Lingard reportedly came close to joining the Magpies in January only for United to block the transfer and Newcastle United are still reportedly interested in signing the England international.
“Jesse Lingard, please go out there and start playing football. It’s what we want to see, it’s what you want to do, it’s what you need to do,” McCoist told talkSPORT.
“We saw your talent when you played for Moyesy [David Moyes] at West Ham. That’s what you’ve got to do mate, you need to get back to playing for yourself.
“A move to somewhere like Newcastle, a team that are on the up and are going places, I really do think it makes sense. I think it’d be a great move for both parties.
“West ham would be great obviously as well.”
Despite an impressive loan spell at West Ham in the second-half of last season in which he scored nine goals and provided five assists in just sixteen appearances, Lingard has struggled to get game time at Manchester United this season.
