WARRINGTON'S Jesse Lingard has confirmed where he will be playing his football next season.

The former Manchester United man has been signed as a free agent by newly promoted Premier League side Nottingham Forest.


It is understood the 29-year-old former William Beamont High School pupil rejected an offer from West Ham United, with whom he spent time on loan in 2021, while Everton had also shown interest.

Attacking midfielder or winger Lingard, who grew up in Longford and started out playing at Penketh United, left Old Trafford after his contract expired this summer.

That put an end to a 12-year stint with the Reds, and the England international now becomes the 11th signing made by Forest as they prepare for their first season in the top flight in 23 years.
