Danny Ings to leave Anfield in search for first-team football

Liverpool forward Danny Ings is set for a move away from Anfield this summer as he look for the opportunity to play regular first-team football.

Ings, a £6.5 million capture from Burnley in the summer of July 2015, has seen his time at Anfield terribly blighted by injury. In October of that year, in his first training session under new manager Jurgen Klopp, he suffered a anterior cruciate ligament injury that effectively ruled him out for the rest of the season, and then, a year later, spent another 9 months on the side-lines after injuring his right knee.

Despite this he managed to fight his way back into first-team contention and made 14 appearances for the club last season, scoring the opener in Liverpool’s two-all draw against West Bromwich Albion in April.

The Guardian reports that Liverpool will not stand in the player’s way by pricing him out of a move, as the 25-year old looks to regain the form that saw him earn a solitary England cap away to Lithuania under Roy Hodgson.

Andy is an exiled English football fan living in Cyprus. He loves all sports but football is his abiding passion, and he still has dreams every now and then about scoring the winning goal in a Wembley Cup Final, even though his playing days are long gone. He follows most major leagues, across Europe at least, and has a favoured team in each. When he’s not watching, listening, reading or downloading podcasts about football, he spend his time worrying about his beloved Arsenal.
