Lingard has scored eight goals in nine appearances for West Ham

Former Manchester United forward Jesse Lingard has joined South Korean club FC Seoul.

The 31-year-old has signed a two-year contract with the option of an additional year.

He had been a free agent since leaving Nottingham Forest last summer, and he fired his agents earlier this month, including members of his family, in an effort to find a new club.

Lingard had a good loan spell with West Ham in 2021 before joining the City Ground. He scored nine goals in 16 appearances in all competitions this season.

Lingard has won the Europa League, FA Cup, and Carabao Cup with Manchester United throughout the course of his long career, having made 232 appearances for the club after coming through its academy.

According to reports, he had grown more angry that various contract offers and inquiries had failed to materialise since his Forest departure.

Lingard was on the verge of joining Saudi club Al Ettifaq in October, but the deal fell through at the last minute.
