Lingard sacks agents in attempt to find new club

Ex-Manchester United winger Jesse Lingard has sacked his agents - including members of his family - in an attempt to find a new club as soon as possible.

The 31-year-old remains a free agent six months on from leaving Nottingham Forest last summer.

The England international has grown very frustrated that several contract offers and enquiries since his Forest exit have failed to materialise.

As a result, Lingard decided to terminate what has been described as a "complex long-term agreement" with his representatives in a bid to revive his career.

Lingard had been represented by members of his family, but took the drastic step of legally dissolving the contract late on Friday night.

A source close to the player has told Sky Sports News that he just wants to play football and is not driven by money as he focuses all of his energy on finding a new club as soon as possible.
