Manchester United and Liverpool are both said to be interested in signing 22 year-old top striker Danny Ings this summer, but Danny has said he doesn’t want to end up on the bench at whatever club he chooses to join in the summer.
Danny Ings – wants to play at new club
Danny has also visited Spain to talk to David Moyes, who is now manager of Real Sociedad and German club Borussia Monchengladbach have also shown an interest, and we’re sure Newcastle would want to sign the free agent in the summer.
It’s what Danny has said in the Independent today that may encourage Newcastle that they have a chance to sign the big powerful striker:
“One thing I don’t want to do is go somewhere and, not rot, but all of a sudden disappear for a while.You don’t really get a look-in. I always back myself and no matter what step I take next I want to do well.”
“One thing I do want next year no matter where I am – and I don’t know where that is going to be – is to work with a manager who is going to coach me and really develop me as a player.”
“That’s all you can ask for, to learn and be the best you can be. It is important that you do get football. A lot of other things can suck you in when it comes to moves, and I am sure that it has happened in the past to people.”
“My main aim next year is, wherever I am, to play football and to enjoy it and develop.” “You don’t want to have a good couple of years, come through the Championship, have a good first year in the Premier League and then not play in the Premier League for another year or so, because that is a backward step.”
No matter what contract anyone is on it is important that you are playing football. It is a short career and you have to earn a living but at the same time playing football is the best way to get better contracts anyway. That’s the way I look at things.”
One example Danny will have been aware of is the former QPR and on-loan Newcastle striker Loic Remy signed on at Chelsea last summer, and has seen very little action in London this year.
Loic seems to be third striker behind Diego Costa and Didier Drogba at the Blues, although Loic is out injured at the moment.
That second last paragraph above is also hinting that if Burnley are relegated this season, he would not want to stay at the Lancashire side and play in the Championship, after doing so well in the Premier League this season, where he has scored 9 goals in 30 Premier League games.
Newcastle will have difficulty signing some of their top targets this summer, because our star has fallen so much over the last couple of years, and those supposed big summer transfers will only happen if we are still in the Premier League at the end of May.
