Saints Announce Danny Ings Signing

Saints have officially announced the signing of Danny Ings on a season long loan from Liverpool.
Saints have issued the following press release
Southampton Football Club is delighted to announce it has completed the deadline-day signing of Liverpool striker Danny Ings.
The Southampton-born 26-year-old joins on a season-long loan, ahead of a permanent move next summer.
Ings began his career further along the south coast, with Bournemouth, before moving to Burnley in 2011, going on to make 130 appearances and scoring 43 goals for the Clarets.
His form at Turf Moor earned him a move to Anfield in 2015 and, although he was restricted by injury, the forward impressed during his time on the pitch in Merseyside.
Southampton manager Mark Hughes said:
“There was significant competition for Danny, with a lot of clubs keen to complete a deal for him, so we’re clearly delighted that he chose to join us.
“He’s obviously a local boy, who gives us another excellent option up front.
“He didn’t get to play as much as he would have liked at Liverpool, but he has been injury-free for some time now and has a real point to prove.
“It’s a great boost for us on the eve of the season to bring another quality player into the squad, and we’re excited about what he can bring to the group.”

Even by our standards, the last week or so has been momentous for Blackpool FC. It all kicked off in the High Court - where too much of our future has been determined in the last two years.
