Transfer Balls: Danny Ings Agrees to Play For Liverpool As Burnley Sell Him To Spurs
Transfer Balls time. News on the official Liverpool FC website is that Danny Ings “completes Anfield switch”.
Former Liverpool players lined up to welcome the Burnley player:
The Liverpool website went into full PR mode, informing fans of the 1o things they need to know about Ings.
Playing for Liverpool would be the pinnacle of Ings’ career:
But it’s all wrong becasue Burnley have formally accepted a late £12million bid from Tottenham for the 22-year-old striker.
This from the Independent:
Brendan Rodgers’ side have been very confident since January that [Ings] would sign for them but Tottenham’s late bid for the player will be taken into consideration if a tribunal meets to decide the fee.
Though Ings has no interest in joining Spurs, Burnley can cite the higher offer, as well as the player’s contribution for them, as relevant factors for consideration if the case comes before a Professional Football Compensation Committee (PFCC).
It’s also being reported that Burnley are holding out for £7-8million despite Ings being out of contract.
Liverpool are now attempting to hammer out a club-to-club agreement with the Clarets in an effort to avoid the wrangling going to a tribunal.
