Man Utd boss Solskjaer insists Lingard 'will play a part'

 Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer insists Jesse Lingard is in his plans.

Contract talks with the 28-year-old - which the United manager says he has not been watching "very closely" - collapsed this week, with the midfielder's current deal expiring next summer.

"Jesse is training really hard, really well and he's ready and available for me. Disappointed he's not playing more," Solskjaer said.

"For me, Jesse is still a big part of this squad and important and he gives quality to the group every day.

"Every player wants to play as much as possible, with Jesse and all my players. They're working really hard, can't fault the attitude when they're called upon.

"Jesse has done well when he's played for us and with the games coming up he's going to play a part."
