West Ham fans are furious with Jesse Lingard for deciding to sign a £200,000-per-week contract with newly-promoted side Nottingham Forest over returning to the London Stadium. 

The England international, who left Manchester United at the end of his contract, turned his back on West Ham to sign for Forest despite excelling on loan with the Hammers last season.

Lingard’s decision has infuriated the West Ham fans and they are planning to make their feelings known when the 29-year-old forward makes his home debut for Forest on August 14.

Lingard is expected to feature for Nottingham Forest when they play David Moyes’ side in August and the West Ham fans are planning to give him a frosty reception. 

A West Ham fan page called Whucentre took to Twitter reveal their plan to throw fake bank notes at the 29-year-old and encouraged other Hammers supporters to join in. 

They shared a screenshot from Amazon, detailing exactly how much the ‘prop money’ costs and wrote the accompanying caption: ‘Anyone else going to Forest away… you know what to do’.

The fans are planning to give Lingard a frosty reception after he snubbed West Ham to become Nottingham Forest’s 11th signing of the summer transfer window. 

Forest approached Lingard with a lucrative £200,000-per-week deal to help strengthen their squad ahead of their first campaign in the Premier League since 1999. 

The Hammers had also been in the transfer race to sign Lingard permanently after his successful loan spell in 2020-21. However, they were reluctant to raise their own offer, which was less than the one made by Forest.

Therefore, Forest won the transfer race to the 29-year-old – who has now joined the club’s other new arrivals for the remainder of their pre-season campaign. 

Owner Evangelos Marinakis has bankrolled a significant summer spending campaign after Forest sealed promotion to the top flight for the first time this century.

They have already committed about £70m on transfers after finalising a double move for Huddersfield’s Lewis O’Brien and Harry Toffolo on Wednesday.

Dean Henderson, who arrived on loan from Manchester United, was Forest’s most eye-catching deal so far, while they also broke their transfer record to sign Taiwo Awoniyi from Union Berlin for £17m.
