Liverpool set for Danny Ings windfall


Danny Ings has made Liverpool millions after leaving Southampton

Liverpool are set to receive a financial boost as a result of Danny Ings' transfer from Southampton to Aston Villa.

The 29-year-old has joined Dean Smith's side for a reported £30million fee and has signed a three-year deal at Villa Park.

When Ings left Anfield in 2018 to join Southampton, initially on loan, Liverpool agreed a 20 per cent sell-on fee as part of the deal.

Initial reports suggested Jurgen Klopp's side could be set to earn a windfall in the region of £6million, due to yet another smart piece of business by sporting director Michael Edwards.

But it is likely to be an amount in the region of £2m,
with the clause seemingly active for any fee above the £20m Ings was sold for by the Reds.

Should the £30m figure be accurate, then it would be 20% of the £10m difference - leading to a £2m payout.

Ings has proven to be a massive hit on the south coast and narrowly missed out on the Premier League Golden Boot after scoring 22 goals during the 2019/20 season.

He turned down a new four-year contract with Southampton last month, which would have made him the most highest-earning player in the club’s history.

And he now joins Villa despite previous links with the likes of Manchester City and Tottenham Hotspur.
