Liverpool have offloaded one of their injury-plagued players this summer, as they send Danny Ings back to his hometown club Southampton.
The former Red’s attacker was unfortunate with injuries since he joined them from Burnley in 2015 and when he was fully fit last season he couldn’t get into the team because of the electrifying form of Mohammed Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane.
He however, told Jurgen Klopp at the start of preseason that he wanted a move away so that he can kick start his career and play regularly, and the Reds placed him on the transfer market.
Newcastle, Crystal Palace and Huddersfield were other teams who were interested in signing Ings all summer after Liverpool placed a £20 million price tag on his head.
However, late into the transfer window deadline day it still appeared like he would spend another season on the bench at Liverpool, before Southampton came in with a late bid for his services.
The deal sheet was submitted before the end of the transfer window, but the paperwork were completed later on. He has signed initially on loan, but the Saints have the obligation to sign him permanently for £ 20 million next summer.
