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.

Turkish defender Çağlar Söyüncü will sign for Leicester City from German side Freiburg for a fee believed to be around £20 million.
The transfer is subject to a work permit that will be decided in the next few days. If a permit is granted then the transfer will go through, but if it doesn’t the deal will be cancelled with Leicester City paying nothing.
The Turkish defender had reportedly been close to signing for Arsenal for £35 million at the start of the transfer window yet the Foxes were able to complete the deal for a reduced fee.
The Foxes have already announced the signing of Croatian defender Filip Benković and the potential unveiling of Söyüncü will help bolster their defence, this season.
