Hence, Jesse Lingard won’t mind joining the Saudi Pro League side on a permanent deal if the club allows him to do so.
Since Nottingham Forest released Jesse Lingard at the end of last season, the attacking midfielder has been in search of a new club but couldn’t get anything concrete before the summer transfer window closed.
Former Manchester United attacking midfielder, Jesse Lingard, has moved to the Saudi Pro League club, Al-Ettifaq, after reaching a one-month training agreement with the club.
After his exit, Lingard trained with West Ham United even after the 2023-2024 Premier League season had commenced. Recall that Lingard played for West Ham United on loan from Manchester United for six months and impressed the club to the extent they were ready to offer him a permanent deal ahead of the 2021-2022 season.
Now, he has to train with Al-Ettifaq in Saudi Arabia for a month with the hope that he would be able to convince the club, coached by former Liverpool captain, Steven Gerrard, to sign him.
