Jack Wilshere has warned Jesse Lingard against leaving Manchester United to rejoin West Ham this month – urging the forgotten star to remember he is at a ‘big club’.

‘I think after the six months he had at West Ham, he probably thought he was going to get a chance (at Man United). He probably deserved a chance,’ the ex-Arsenal midfielder told talkSPORT.

‘Sometimes you need to sit back and look at how lucky you are to be at a big club like that and the fans…
‘Alright, they’re not challenging but it’s still a big club and teams go there and are intimidated by that. To be on that side of the fence rather than going to them places makes a massive difference.’
