Liverpool confirm Danny Ings' loan move to Premier League club

While Ings will spend a year on loan at Southampton, the Saints have committed to paying £18million on the 1st of July 2019 with a potential £2million to follow based on the number of appearances he makes.

The fee is variable though, and the Saints could be required to pay a further £2m in appearance-related add-ons, while Liverpool also have a 20% sell-on clause.

Danny Ings departed Liverpool on Thursday with a message of luck for the club he has called home for the past three years.

Ings arrived at Liverpool in 2015 after a great season with Burnley and was expected to do big things with the Reds but two serious knee injuries put paid to that and he is now on a mission to resurrect what was a hugely promising career. There will be more players on the move in the winter window but, for now, the focus is on the football.

Maddock explained his suitors Southampton or Crystal Palace must strike a "definitive agreement" with Liverpool "in the next hour" or Ings will remain at Anfield this season.

The England global became Southampton's fourth transfer of the window and manager Mark Hughes is thrilled to have secured the 26-year-old.

The transfer deadline has come and gone but Premier League clubs will still be able to complete late deals if they had submitted a deal sheets with the authorities.

Ings leaves with everyone at Liverpool's best wishes, with staff and team-mates aware how hard he worked to get back to full fitness after those devastating injuries.

Otherwise, there were no further exits at Anfield with Marko Grujic and Sheyi Ojo remaining at the club for now - though both could sign a loan deal to the Football League or make a permanent move overseas before the end of the month.
