      Reds agree deal to sign Danny Ings

      Liverpool FC are delighted to announce that they have agreed personal terms with Danny Ings and, subject to a medical, the striker will join the club on July 1 after his contract with Burnley has expired.

      The 22-year-old struck 11 goals in 35 Barclays Premier League appearances last season, which was his first in the top flight.

      Ings had found the target 21 times in the previous campaign to help the Clarets secure promotion from the Championship.

      The forward has nine caps for England U21s, with four goals to date too, and will represent his country at the U21 European Championship later this month.

      Ings faced the Reds twice in 2014-15, featuring for 90 minutes at Anfield in March.186426-reds-agree-deal-to-sign-danny-ings

      Welcome home, I like him but we need a top top striker now!

      To score more goals than any Liverpool striker this season in Burnley team reflects how poor we were in front of goal.

      The fact of the matter is, like it or not, he is now a Liverpool player. So I hope everyone gets behind him and gives him a chance on the pitch before casting judgement. Good luck to the lad, YNWA...

      Good luck Danny. At least he fits the profile of striker we need. He will provide good back up I hope.

      Now we need an upgrade to really improve the side.

      There is no need for this really is there? And there is no need for anybody to question or criticise FSG in this thread either.

      This is the Danny Ings thread. A player who did well in a side that was relegated last season. A player who hasn't even kicked a ball for us yet and some people are still moaning.

      I for one am happy with this signing. I like the look of Ings and I think he can do a job for us. He comes across as the sort of player who will always give it 100% and fight for his place and those players are ALWAYS fan favourites. IF he doesn't make the step up then I'm sure we can sell him on in a year or two and make some money on him anyway. So its win-win.

      Welcome to the best club in the world Danny. Looking forward to seeing you in a red shirt mate.

      It was tongue in cheek dude. And IF he doesn't turn out good it is not 'win win' at all. Pathetic comment that.

      It's 'lose win'. The side and the support loses and FSG win financially.

      Not trying to start arguments in here but forgive me for not being over excited by our free (ish) transfer of a striker who doesn't score that much from relegated Burnley. Hope I'm wrong.

      Free? You clearly have no idea about this transfer. He's going to cost about 7m, personally I think that's about what he'd be worth if he was under contract for a few years. We should be paying around 4m.

      This lad is 22 years old and is in the age group representative squads for England. He led the line on his own last season for a relegated team and got into double figures. So far in his career he has tended not to get injured, and he looks like the kind of bloke who runs his bollocks off for the shirt every single game. He didn't make it as a kid, was released by Southampton I think it was before he went to Bournemouth. From there he was out on loan to a non-league team for quite a while, and he even took a while to break through at Bournemouth when he came back. Went to Burnley and after a slow start was the championship player of the year last season, before stepping up this this season just gone. I get the impression this lad knows what it's like to clean his own boots, knows what it's like to go in the showers after the game and discover there's no hot water, knows what it's like to have the sh!t kicked out of him on a wet and freezing night in Rochdale. Is he a superstar? No, nor is he a "marquee" signing either. What he is is an old fashioned footballer, one who wants to better himself and by all accounts is a superhuman trainer who works on his game continually. We've had a couple of them at Liverpool before, from such unheralded clubs as Scunthorpe and the like, some of 'em didn't turn out half bad either.

      A couple of other points. When we went in for him at Christmas the lad made it 100% clear that no matter what, he was staying at Burnley till the end of the season to try and help them stay up. It made not one iota of difference how much money he was offered or who offered it, he was going to see out his contract at Burnley. Sean Dyche mentioned many times how everyone at the club was full of admiration for his stance, and how his attitude and professionalism was first class. In these days of player revolt, I personally think it was a nice thing to hear. The other thing to compare and contrast is if Danny Ings was called Daniello Ingshasi and was being signed from Bologna as opposed to Burnley, how different would all our reactions be?

      As I've said many times I'm a sucker for an underdog. Obviously we need a top striker or indeed any striker who bags us goals, but there's something within me that kind of hopes that whoever we get, Danny Ings is a huge success in whatever capacity we use him. Welcome to Liverpool Football club Danny, prove everyone wrong mate and smash it to pieces.

      I've watched the kid a lot from we were first linked with him. For what it's worth (my opinion) - He runs the channels very well; finds space, very well; can play off the shoulder; links up, very well and can finish with head, right or left. If he gets any sort of run in a team, playing any way well, he'll score plenty.

      Welcome Danny.

      Danny Ings: Why do Liverpool have to pay a fee for the Burnley striker?

      Andy Burton explains why Liverpool have to pay Burnley for out-of-contract striker Danny Ings.

      Danny Ings has agreed a deal to join Liverpool from Burnley but that might not be the end of the matter as the small matter of the fee is yet to be confirmed.

      While Burnley have announced that Ings will move to Merseyside subject to a medical, this will be upon the completion of his contract at the club rather than by any agreement with the Reds.

      “Burnley Football Club has rejected an offer made by Liverpool,” read a statement on their website. “But will continue to have dialogue with the club in order to reach a resolution over the fee.”

      So why should Burnley get a fee for a player who will no longer be under contract to the club as of July? Sky Sports reporter Andy Burton explains the situation.

      "Burnley won’t end up empty-handed here if Ings leaves on a free transfer,” says Burton.

      “Due to his age they will receive compensation, a practice which has been in place for a number of years to protect clubs who develop their own talent but can’t always afford to keep them.”

      Arriving at an agreed amount can be a tricky business. “A Premier League Compensation Committee would be formed, and they would be the ones who determine a suitable amount,” adds Burton.

      “These committees are made up of an independent chairman with a legal background, a representative of the Football League, Premier League, the PFA and the LMA. Between them, they will come up with an appropriate fee based on a number of factors.

      “They would take into account the status of the club the player is leaving, the status of the club he’s joining, the amount of money the club paid when they signed him originally, the length of time he spent at the club and the terms of the contract offered to him by the club he’s at and the club he’s leaving.

      “They would also factor in his playing record including any international appearances, as well as any ‘substantiated interest’ shown by other clubs in signing him and reported interest in a player could see the compensation amount rise.

      “The panel would also consider other costs, which Burnley would have to provide evidence of, including cost of training and playing facilities, education and welfare requirements, medical facilities, friendly and competitive matches as well as scouting and coaching fees.

      “It’s impossible to guess a likely figure due to the amount of detail, but expect it to be lower than the £12m reportedly offered by Tottenham earlier this month.”

      Burnley won’t be the only club entitled to compensation either. Having spent five years coming through the ranks at Bournemouth, they too will be in line for a payment, although Burton believes it would be “probably not more than a couple of hundred thousand pounds”.

      Quite like him - good movement and a bit of skill.
      We still need a genuine goal machine, but he is an upgrade on Borini and Lambert.

      Danny Ings is an inspired signing for Liverpool - he can be better than Harry Kane

      The England under-21 striker might not be as celebrated as his Tottenham counterpart, but he has the ability and character to thrive at Anfield.

      Having witnessed Luis Suarez scoring the crucial goal in Barcelona’s Champions League final triumph against Juventus at the weekend, Liverpool supporters are more likely to be mourning the loss of a talisman this morning than celebrating the arrival of Danny Ings at Anfield.

      One is a £75m superstar, the player who almost ended Liverpool’s 24-year wait for a league title last year; the other is an out-of-contract England under-21 forward who failed to score the goals to keep Burnley in the Premier League.

      In such black and white terms, it is easy to suggest that Liverpool’s move for Ings offers further proof of the club’s inability attract and keep the best players -- Raheem Sterling, who was booed throughout England’s goalless draw with the Republic of Ireland in Dublin on Sunday is another example of a player who believe Liverpool can only take him so far.

      But if you cut through the cynicism and judge the Ings signing on its merits, the reality is that Liverpool and Brendan Rodgers have made a smart move for a player whose qualities are likely to blossom at Anfield rather than drag the club down.
      Many good judges regard Ings as a certainty to play for England at senior level, some would even suggest that the 22-year-old is the best prospect of an emerging crop with also includes Harry Kane and Saido Berahino.
      The comparison with Berahino is a loose one, merely based on the two forwards developing with the under-21s at the same time: they are very different players.

      That is less the case with Ings versus Kane. They are two classic centre-forwards who have come to the end of their first full season in the Premier League with their reputations enhanced, even if it is only Kane seeing his name up in lights.

      The big positive for Liverpool, however, is that Ings will retain the surprise element next season, having largely gone under the radar with Burnley.And if he maintains the progress he has shown at Turf Moor over the past 12 months, Ings can use Anfield as the stage to surpass Kane and become the more celebrated of the two.

      Kane enjoyed a magnificent campaign at Tottenham last season, scoring 31 goals in 51 appearances for Mauricio Pochettino’s team, as well one on his England debut against Lithuania in March.

      The 21-year-old has a clear eye for goal, physical presence and aerial prowess, but as the season drew to a close, the goals began to dry up - he scored just twice in two months after his England debut -- with opponents learning how to shackle him.
      Ings scored 11 goals in 37 appearances for Burnley, a return completely overshadowed by Kane, but given he was playing for a team which found chances and goals incredibly hard to come by, such a contribution highlights his ability to make and take opportunities.
      The qualities which mark Ings out are his movement, pace, ability to hold the ball up as a link-man and two strong feet.
      He is an all-round centre-forward and, while Kane’s aerial ability is better, Ings appears to possess more components for success at the top level than his Tottenham counterpart.

      How he handles the move to Liverpool will define his input on the pitch, however. With Daniel Sturridge due to miss the start of the season through injury and manager Rodgers showing little or no faith in Mario Balotelli and Rickie Lambert - both of whom may well be sold - Ings is likely to start the season in the team.

      He could partner Divock Origi, the 20-year-old Belgian who will arrive from Lille this summer, but Ings’s greater Premier League experience is likely to give him the edge as Rodgers’s first option.

      For many who have not seen Ings at close hand, eyes will be rolled at Liverpool’s move for him.
      But he is a player who can quickly become the answer to Liverpool’s goalscoring problems and while he will never be another Suarez, he will be better than many anticipate.

      F***ing gutted. This is the heights of our ambition, raiding relegated teams for big fish in small ponds. Where's our f**king scouts? It doesn't need a scout to shop at Burnley or Southampton, Scouts are meant to be combing the world for the unearthed gems. It's not his fault but for me he'll forever be the poster boy for why no manager will bring us success under this piss poor ownership model that simply fails to understand the value of big statements by signing big players. Tlad is not good enough to wear the shirt and is no step up on anyone we have at the club right now. FSG need to go before we end up cementing a mid table position.

      I wish him all the best as he is now a Red.
      However I would be hypocritical if I said I was overjoyed with this signing.
      All his stats suggest he is a mid to bottom table player - will he propel us to challenge for Top 4?

      Secondly with his tribunal fee of about £5-6M that probably 20% of our net transfer fee gone that could be put towards the top quality forward we are all cring out for.

      Mid table player heading to a team with mid table ambitions.

      He's an improvement on Balotelli, Borini and Lambert at least.

      No he's not ! Borini did incredibly well for Sunderland, Lambert was good for Southampton, Balotelli was ok for Milan. Just because he did well Burnley doesn't mean he will do well here plus when his club needed him and were fighting for relegation, he hasn't scored for a 3 months nor had an assist so to be honest this signing is pointless because we should be strengthening our first XI not the bench.
