Derby boss Steve Mclaren has admitted that Jesse Lingard is on his way back to Manchester United.
The winger is on loan at Derby, who just missed out on the Championship playoffs this season.
He’s impressed for the Rams towards the end of this season, but the ex-England boss isn’t hopeful of getting him back for another assault at promotion next season.
McClaren told the Derby Telegraph: “Jesse will go back to Manchester United.
“[He will] have an opportunity and chance to play there.”
