Former Manchester United and England midfielder Jesse Lingard is seriously considering an offer from South Korean club FC Seoul.

The 31-year-old has been without a club since leaving Nottingham Forest at the end of last season.

K-League side FC Seoul have offered Lingard a two-year deal and a substantial salary.

Earlier this season, Lingard trained with West Ham and also spent time training at Saudi side Al-Ettifaq.

According to an official familiar with the K-League transfer, Lingard will arrive in the country next Monday, undergo a medical test with the Seoul club, and then join the team that will leave for training in Kagoshima, Japan on 4 February.

Lingard started his professional career at Manchester United, spending 11 years at the club before leaving in 2022 to join Forest following their promotion to the Premier League.
