Danny Ings: Subject of Sunderland loan approach

Southampton have reportedly completed a late deadline day swoop for Liverpool striker Danny Ings, who is said to have joined the club on a season-long loan.

England international Ings has been told he can leave Liverpool by Jurgen Klopp, who was looking for around £20million for the striker.

However, with the fee putting off all three of his suitors in Crystal Palace, Newcastle and Saints, it is the latter who have reportedly swooped to sign the striker on a season-long loan, according to Sky Sports News.

With the deal not being completed before the 5pm deadline, Sky claims Saints did, however, manage to lodge the necessary registration with the Premier League before the clock ticked down and the player will be available to make his debut on Sunday against his former club, Burnley.

Ings grew up as a Southampton fan, having grown up in nearby Winchester.
