Sky Sports report that the 30-year-old has returned to the Hammers.

And there remains the chance Lingard could be offered a short-term contract at the club.

The attacking midfielder starred during a loan spell at the London Stadium back in 2021.

He joined in January from Manchester United and rediscovered his best form under David Moyes.

Lingard scored nine goals and assisted five in 16 matches to help West Ham finish sixth in the Premier League.

His sensational form saw him earn a place back in the England squad.

Moyes was desperate to keep him at the club beyond his loan but could not agree a deal with him.

He stayed at Man Utd for another season before his deal expired.

Again, West Ham tried and failed to land him as Forest snapped up the free agent.

But he failed to impress at the City Ground last term, scoring just twice in 20 appearances.

Lingard played 232 times for Man Utd during his career, winning the FA Cup, League Cup and Europa League with his boyhood team.

He has previously admitted he would be open to joining a Saudi Arabian club but there has no clubs have offered him a contract this summer.
