    Default Danny Ings

    Per Jeremy Wilson on Twitter

    “Southampton have submitted a deal sheet to Premier League in an attempt to get extension for Danny Ings deal. They are now hopeful of getting it done”

    Yep. He will be better than carillo and could be a lot better than some melts assume. I'm pleased we've got him.

    Makes a bit more sense. I don't rate him at all - hopefully he'll prove me wrong.

    We've known we've needed a striker since 2016, so it's a bit odd that we're having to submit an extention. Bit last-ditch, when it shouldn't have been. Still have absolutley no confidence in who is running our recruitment at the moment.

    We needed another striker though, without question. Glad they finally got one and if fit he's a hell of a lot better than Carillo, we just need to hope he stays fit and we don't end up with a season of Ings and Austin in the treatment room!

    Still, it's a cheap gamble I guess.

    Season long loan deal with obligation to buy.

    Sounds to me as if Liverpool lowered the asking price at the last minute.

    I don't find it strange at all. I suspect, but of course this is pure conjecture, that LFC wanted to sell for £20m. No one was biting so it went to the last minute before they took what offer was out there, which was a loan for him. Whether it is too late remains to be seen.

    It's just an excuse for some of our moronic fans to have a pop at the board

    We’ve been given a two hour extension to sign him.

    One good season in the championship a long time ago is about the sum of his career.

    Except that doing it at the last minute, Liverpool would be more desperate to offload him, making it cheaper for us.(maybe).

    If it’s correct the club were trying to get Welbeck but pulled out because his wage demand would have undermined the club’s pay structure, then we should hope the attempt to get Ings instead has come off.
    But let’s remember Pellegrino was sacked for under-performance of the squad, NOT because the players weren’t good enough. That squad has been improved so the moaners may have to eat their words.

    What does this 'obligation to buy' mean, as oppose to 'option to buy'? Surely Liverpool can't force us to buy him if he doesn't do very well?!

    Our record for signing mis-firing strikers continues. One day one of these will come good. Just hope it's Ings.

    And a good season in the PL which prompted Liverpool to sign him.

    If we were signing him from Burnley on the back of that PL season, we'd be loving it.

    probably means that if certain milestones are hit, we are locked into buying him at an agreed price...

    That will be the line trotted out no doubt. I have it on good authority (and seem to remember someone on here recently saying something to the same effect) he's quite sure of himself (i.e. bit of a pr*ck) and revelled in our misfortune a few years ago as he is bitter towards us releasing him when he was a kid.

    I should imagine a high number of professional players are in the 'pr1ck' category.

    Yeah, you get these deals quite a lot. ''If he plays x number of games, the transfer becomes perm etc". Which kind of is still a good deal, as he'd need to have a fairly injury free season to activate that anyway.

    That’s before two acl injuries.

    I think I'd rather stick with Gallagher. He's cheaper, younger, and offers more potential upside

    Yeah, maybe. no harm in a loan though, if he scores/plays enough then it's a win win. (i.e we get him, for what is probably quite a small fee - relative to this day and age)

    Right ok, makes sense, thanks (and Batman). Hopefully we have negotiated a reasonable price (not the £20m they wanted...) and don't do anything stupid like accidentally playing him in a game which obligates us to sign him if he's not looking up to it. Anything is possible with Saints nowadays...!

    Underwhelming signing, but how much would it actually take for a goal scorer to be an improvement over Carillo & Long ?

    2 goals. That's all we ask for.

    Great if he comes back, happy with that. Good that he is more of a Lambert / Pella player... its if he can stay fit

    And after 2 he previously had. His knees are shot to bits... and people moan about Austin’s fitness

    You what? Have you ever seen him play? He’s more like a Shane Long with Charlie Austin’s knees.

    Born in Southampton, lived here until he moved to Burnley... wouldn’t say he’s a supporter though.

    He’s Just brought a new house in Netley.

    The player Liverpool bought was class; if he can rediscover that I'd be happy

    Almost nothing. An hour ago I was convinced we were signing no one and now we have possibly got someone in that could improve us. Not sure why anyone would prefer us not to have anyone.

    Well I did one and pleased about this. If he can stay fit he works hard and scores goals. If not then we don’t pursue option to buy. What’s not to like?

    Its an interesting attempt. One we have left to the last minute, obviously... and one which is a second choice because we didn't want to pay any real money... we're still trapped by the legacy of expensive players on stupid contracts and it is hurting us big time.

    If he comes and stays fit and in form, a good deal. if not meh.
