Southampton complete loan move for Liverpool forward Ings

Southampton have completed the signing of Liverpool striker Danny Ings on an initial loan, though the south-coast club will be required to make the deal permanent next summer.

Although his first year will be on loan, Southampton have committed to buy the striker on July 1, 2019. It should also be remembered that Liverpool defeated Manchester City three times last season, as well as recently beating the sky blues in pre-season.

The 26-year-old joined the Anfield side for £6.5m in 2015, but a string of injuries has limited the former Burnley forward to just 14 appearances. Capped once by England, he was keen to move on this summer in a bid to play regular football. Southampton, though, were Ings' first choice. It's his home, his family is there, it's his boyhood club.

It's stated that the request has been made, and Southampton now have to hope that they submitted all the necessary paperwork to be given a two-hour extension and attempt to finalise the deal before 7pm.

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.

Italy worldwide Andrea Belotti pulled one back for the visitors with a powerful header, but after Klopp made a raft of substitutions, Daniel Sturridge nodded in a Xherdan Shaqiri cross to score for the third friendly in a row.

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.
