Newcastle Could Be In For Burnley Striker

We have been linked before this summer with Burnley striker Danny Ings, who has just one year left on his contract at the Turd Moor club.

Danny Ings – 21 year-old Burnley striker

Newcastle have been interested in Ings for over four years, and we had reports out back in early 2010 when he was on loan at Dorchester Town from Bournemouth, that Newcastle were keeping tabs on the then 17 year-old striker.

The Southampton-born player has played 4 times for the England U21 side with two goals, and since Burnley have just been promoted you wouldn’t expect they would let their top goalscorer leave the club.

But Danny has just one year left on his four year contract at Burnley, and he has still not signed an extension, so we don’t know if Newcastle are making it known to this agent that they are interested.

But Newcastle are always well aware of the contract situation of their potential transfer targets, and two years before their contract runs out Newcastle watch to see if the players seem ready to become free agents.

Certainly if Danny plays out the last year of his contract through next June, there could be big interest in this free agent next summer,

Ings joined Burnley from Bournemouth back in 2011, and in the last three seasons he has scored 32 goals in 93 appearances, so certainly last season was by far his best at Burnley.

In March, Ings won the Championship Player of the Year at Football League Award, and beat out two other nominees – Leeds forward Ross McCormack and Leicester City midfielder Danny Drinkwater.

Newcastle have been heavily linked with striker McCormack this morning, and the news is that a £5M offer for the Scot could see Newcastle get their first senior signing of the summer.

Comments welcome.

    its not the amount its the quality of them ! arma/cambell can do a below par job up front already then we have cisse who if isnt going looks like he will be our first teamer and perez if he signs looks the better of them all.

    i’d say send arma/cambell out on loan / no point in selling cisse as no one will want him so put him alongside a quality striker who will make him look good and bring his confidence back and use perez as impact sub and cover for injuries.

    I don’t think anyone knows who we are after –
    if any –
    so media/fans are throwing anyone who has scored a few goals in the ring and hopefully it comes up trumps whahooo we have a story!!!!!

    @6 average

    tbh i like colback ^^ he’s a gritty hardworking midfielder who’s got a good all round game and knows how to tackle and score and you always seem to get a consistant performance outa him !

    i’d take him with open arms…oh and he’s a toon fan so maybe he will be like saylor in the way he plays.

    i’d <3 to see an english geordie captain in the future.

    Let me get this straight. The newly promoted Burnley will sold their lead striker from last year? To the club who pay with peanuts? And despite the fact that Burnley will get more than a 100 mill? Okay.

    I’m surprised we haven’t made a move for Jordan Rhodes of Blackburn. Proven goal scorer in the Championship and still young!!!!

    The way some fans are banging on you’d think that all the other clubs have signed about 8 players…. The press hype things up so much its ridonkulous there’s near enough 3 months left and players are on holiday and there’s a world cup. There won’t be anything happening for a while so calm down boys haha

    Ricky Lambert it the only signing I would of taken from these so far and he’s too old haha
