“Jesse’s [Lingard] had a good start to the season, of course,” said Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
“He’s come on and scored a few goals for us that’s been very important for us.
“We want to prolong his contract, we see him as an important player for us, it’s up to him maybe up to me to give him more playing time because he deserves to.”
The Manchester United boss added: “Hopefully, we can get a deal sorted for Jesse because we really rate him.”
Jesse Lingard has scored twice and assisted as many in just six Premier League appearances this term.
However, he’s been ‘seeking assurances’ over his role at the club even though a new contract offer is on the table.
