Transfer Balls: Burnely’s Danny Ings dreams of Liverpool and signs two pre-contracts deals with Real Sociedad

Transfer Balls:  a look at football nonsense reported as fact in the mainstream media: Today Burnley’s Danny Ings is heading to Liverpool and Real Sociedad.

The Sun leads with news that Burnley’s Danny Ings is heading out to meet David Moyes, the manager of Real Sociedad. With just six months to go on his Burnley contract, Ings will be a frre agent in the summer. The Sun says the 22-year-old fancies Spain and is ready to sign a £60,000-a-week pre-contract.

But in a highly unusual arrangement, Liverpool are now expected to agree terms with the Turf Moor club in the next few weeks, in a deal which would see Ings arrive in June – possibly for a fee of £5m.
