JESSE LINGARD will NOT be leaving Manchester United before the winter transfer window slams shut, despite interest from a number of clubs.
Manchester United are not willing to sanction a move to either West Ham, Tottenham or Newcastle.
Interim boss Ralf Rangnick had given the ok for Lingard to leave after a meeting earlier today.
But The Athletic report Red Devils were not keen to sanction a move to top-four rivals West Ham or Tottenham.
Newcastle too could soon become direct competition after their Saudi-backed takeover, which put United off doing business with the Magpies.
That’s despite the Toon and West Ham both submitting improved packages for his services.
