- Lingard posts cryptic message
- The England international is a free agent
- Released by Nottingham Forest
WHAT HAPPENED? Lingard shared a cryptic message on his Instagram stories after being released by Nottingham Forest in the summer at the end of his contract.
WHAT THEY SAID: "Shoutout to the young people out there who are grinding on a dream that no one thinks is possible. The critics are wrong. You'll make it happen if you never quit," he wrote on his Instagram stories.
THE BIGGER PICTURE: Nottingham Forest were relegated in the summer after spending a year in the Premier League. Lingard joined Forest on a one-year deal and was integral in their run to the Carabao Cup semi-finals last season, scoring twice in that run. He was, however, released along with five other players in the summer.
