Newcastle Target Available In Summer As Free Agent

According to Sky Sports news Danny Ings will remain at Burnley until the end of the season, but is unlikely to sign a new deal before his contract runs out in the summer.

Danny Ings – Burnley striker available in the summer?

While he will be a free agent, because he is under 24 Burnley will be due about £3M in compensation for the 22 year-old who has been at Burnley since 2011 after joining them from Bournemouth for £1M.

This is what Sky Sports reporter James Cooper has said about the striker:

“I’m led to believe the stance of the club remains the same. The striker is not for sale. Danny Ings himself is happy to remain at Turf Moor for the foreseeable future.”

“His contract is up in the summer. He becomes a free agent and then will explore his options whether that is staying with Burnley or perhaps moving on.”

£3M for a player who has scored 7 goals in 19 Premier League appearances is really good value, and that’s what owner Mike Ashley is interested in – a good deal.

So we expect Newcastle to be interested in the player, and the club can talk to him now, since he has only six months to run on his contract.

In fact Newcastle; could sign him on a pre-contract agreement now to be executed on or after July 1st – if we can reach some agreement on his wages.

And we’d also have to reach agreement with Burnley on compensation – but they obviously want to keep him at Turf Moor.

We hope Newcastle are pursuing this English striker right now, and it does seem the club are trying to get in more English players.

We’ll have goalkeeper Karl Darlow and center-back Jamaal Lascelles joining the first team squad in the summer from a season long loan at Nottingham Forest.

    And so the blob slowly engulfs and absorbs another fine institution. I can imagine Ashley using his company proliferation to slowly absorb many premier football clubs, in many lands. Like a wasting disease of the sport, a parasite that spreads his tack around the globe

    It’s funny how we can’t even get a manager at the club yet all these links to players continue, personally I couldn’t care less who we are linked with anymore as unless the chain is broken and we stand up and force this man out of our club, who we sign, who we appoint as our manager will count for nothing

    I think big Mikey has taken a leaf out of Bill Gates’ book and become a philanthropist now that he is worth a SQUILLION. He is doing all these wonderful things for the benefit of football fans in Newcastle and Glasgow. He should be deemed a national treasure and Knighted for services to football.
    As Ed would write….. comments welcome

    Have to laugh that on the day when it was stated the SFA would demand answers, he has just increased his stake in Rangers, got 2 more board appointees and takes over 75% of Rangers retail profits. That’ll cool their porridge. At least he forked out good money too drag us through the garbage. He’s bagged Rangers for small change. PHSL.

    If they think that by waitng to get Ings for nowt at the end of the season is possible there dafter than I thought. He’ll be long gone before then, probably in this window to any other team than us, a team who is prepared to spend money. we’ll never compete with other teams, teams who are prepared to pay the going rate for top players.
