Southampton are closing in on the loan signing of Danny Ings as they made a pursuit for the forward at the eleventh hour. The Saints successfully submitted a deal sheet prior to 5pm deadline meaning they have until 7pm tonight to finalise a deal.
The Liverpool striker had been touted to the numerous Premier League clubs like Crystal Palace and Newcastle, this window, for a fee believed to be in the region of £20 million.
However, with no permanent deal in sight, Liverpool accepted a loan offer from Southampton with the club currently trying to complete the deal before the 7pm deadline.
The Englishman has been very unlucky throughout his tenure at the Reds, where he has spent a majority of his time at the club facing different injuries. Ings suffered a cruciate ligament rupture in 2015 and also required surgery on his right knee the following season. A loan move away from the club should be exactly what the England forward needs to get his football career back on track.
