Newcastle have expressed an interest in signing the England international until the end of the season, yet it’s believed the Magpies have offered a lower sum than what United require.

According to TalkSport, Lingard will be able to leave Old Trafford on loan but only for the right price.

The 29-year-old has made just nine Premier League appearances this season and hardly featured under Ralf Rangnick.
