West Ham now believe they only have a 10 per cent chance of re-signing Jesse Lingard from Manchester United.
Lingard joined West Ham on loan in January and his impressive displays helped the club finish sixth in the Premier League.
He also forced his way back into the England squad - playing in the warm-up games ahead of Euro 2020, although he was not selected for the tournament itself.
Lingard is now back in pre-season training with Manchester United and he featured in their recent warm-up games against QPR and Brentford.
