Southampton have landed Liverpool striker Danny Ings on a season-long loan with an agreement to sign him permanently at the end of the campaign.

Ings, who was brought up kicking a ball around at Netley Recreation Ground, joined on a season-long loan deal yesterday ahead of making the move permanent next summer in a £16m deal.

Ings arrived at Liverpool in 2015 after a great season with Burnley and was expected to do big things with the Reds but two serious knee injuries put paid to that and he is now on a mission to resurrect what was a hugely promising career.

It was all very last minute, with Saints flying Ings down on a private jet to Southampton Airport and getting an extension past the 5pm transfer deadline from the Premier League to force the deal through.

Ings completed an initial loan switch to St Mary's which will be made permanent for £16m next summer, ending an injury-plagued spell at Anfield which saw him limited to only six Premier League starts in the past three years.

"There was significant competition for Danny, with a lot of clubs keen to complete a deal for him, so we're clearly delighted that he chose to join us".

"We are the ideal club for Danny at this point in his career". Honestly, if you could bottle character and spirit, his would sell worldwide - he is so incredibly positive and full of energy.

He said: "It is a very unusual feeling saying goodbye to Danny".

It was unclear whether Southampton had got the paperwork in on time.

"So we say farewell to a friend, but for Danny I know the best chapters in his personal story are still to be written".

"I think fans respond to that as well". He is as fit now as at any point of his career I would bet and he just requires the opportunity.

The source added that the fee will include £18m guaranteed with a further £2m in add-ons based on appearances.
