Former Premier League striker Darren Bent has urged Jesse Lingard to quit Manchester United to try and revive his career under old boss Jose Mourinho at Tottenham.
Lingard has found it tough to get regular minutes under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as he continues to fall down the Old Trafford pecking order.
There have been reports that Mourinho wants to be reunited with the 27-year-old at White Hart Lane.
It has even been suggested that England international Dele Alli could be used as part of a swap deal.

Lingard only scored one Premier League goal last season – on the final day against Leicester – and he could be set to leave the club where he progressed through the academy.
The Daily Star claims Lingard was furious with being left out of the squad which lost to Crystal Palace on Saturday.
“In the same way the squad is a puzzle, the bench is also a little puzzle. So to have on the bench Toby and Serge, and Moussa and Gio, and Lamela, and Bergwijn.
“I cannot have on the bench four wingers or three wingers and a No 10, and then no defenders. Everything is a puzzle so in these matches that he stayed out, probably Tuesday he will play and others he will stay out.”
