JESSE LINGARD’S agents reportedly attended Newcastle’s game against Tottenham as his Instagram appeared to hint at a possible transfer from Manchester United.
Sky Sports claim the England midfielder’s representatives were present at St James’ Park on Sunday for Newcastle’s first game since their £300million Saudi takeover.
A picture posted on Instagram Stories via Lingard’s ‘JLingz’ account showed Newcastle’s pitch shortly before their 3-2 defeat to Nuno Espirito Santo’s side.
And it’s reckoned Lingard’s representatives were in attendance to ‘keep an eye’ on proceedings.
Sky’s Pete Graves tweeted: “Interesting to see this pop up on Jesse Lingard’s ‘jlingz’ account on Instagram.
“I understand Lingard’s representatives were at St James’ Park yesterday keeping an eye on developments at NUFC.”
Lingard, 28, has made just four Premier League appearances since returning from last season’s loan spell at West Ham.
He is out of contract next summer.

And numerous clubs are reportedly lining up to sign Lingard in January, including Barcelona and AC Milan.
However, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer remains keen to sign the ace up to a new long-term deal.
Speaking ahead of United’s 4-2 defeat to Leicester on Saturday, the Norwegian boss said: “We want to prolong Lingard’s contract because we see him as an important player for us.
“It’s up to him – and maybe up to me – to give him more playing time because he deserves to.
“Hopefully we can get a deal sorted because we really rate him.”
