Liverpool set for Danny Ings windfall as Ben Davies transfer plan emerges

Your morning digest on Thursday, August 5th.

Danny Ings has just made Liverpool money after leaving Southampton

Former Liverpool striker Danny Ings has completed a shock move to Aston Villa.

The 29-year-old is believed to have cost the West Midlands club £30million and has agreed a three-year deal at Villa Park.

Ings was unable to establish himself as a first-team regular at Anfield, largely down to his injury troubles, but was highly regarded but those at the club.

“He is such an outstanding boy,” said Jurgen Klopp after his move to the south coast was confirmed.

“Honestly, if you could bottle character and spirit, his would sell worldwide – he is so incredibly positive and full of energy. But we won’t just miss his character because he is a footballer who has all the tools.”

Liverpool parted ways with the striker in 2018 when selling to Southampton, though negotiated a smart transfer deal courtesy of sporting director Michael Edwards.

And it looks set to bank the Reds around £2m as a result of his new move.

The 25-year-old is yet to make a competitive appearance for the club since joining in February and that looks unlikely to change given recent circumstances.

With Virgil van Dijk, Joel Matip and Joe Gomez edging closer to action following lengthy lay-offs, coupled with the arrival of Ibrahima Konate, opportunities appear unlikely to be forthcoming for Davies.
