  14. Lingard and West Ham 'fantastic fit' - Kelly

    BBC Sounds

    Former Premier League defender Stephen Kelly can't imagine Jesse Lingard wanting to sign for anyone other than West Ham when he becomes a free agent on 1 July.

    Kelly told BBC Radio 5 Live's Football Daily: "I think everybody was in awe of what he did when he went down there and it seemed like such a fantastic fit for Lingard and West Ham.

    "Regardless of what’s on offer, I couldn’t imagine him not wanting to go there.

    "Even if he had better options, he would have felt this might be the way for me to get back enjoying football and playing at a level that pushes me. He keeps pushing for the England squad and if he goes back and does that again he would absolutely be warranted a position in there again."

    Good point, Martin (Get Involved 12:40 entry)

    If I could borrow all your thumbs for just a moment, do you think there is even a chance Erling Haaland might not deliver in the Premier League?

    Probably a daft question but hey, it's Tuesday.
