Newcastle’s 25-Year-Old English Striker Target Now Available – Sign Him Up


The Guardian are reporting that Newcastle’s long-term transfer target Danny Ings wants to leave Liverpool to get first-team football.

Newcastle have been linked with Ings since he was 17 and playing on loan at Dorchester Town from AFC Bournemouth back in early 2010.

There are at least six times since then that Newcastle have been linked strongly with a move for the Winchester-born player including the last three transfer windows.

Danny has had a tough time of it at Liverpool with two serious knee injuries, but he has also been praised by manager Jurgen Klopp for his excellent attitude and determination in training.

25-year-old Danny Ings – want to leave Reds to get first-team football

He seems to be Rafa’s type of player in that he wants to get better and succeed and he could well do that on Tyneside.

Liverpool don’t want to lose him because he has been so useful to them as a useful sub this year, but it’s Ings himself who wants to play more football.

Liverpool paid £6.5M for him from Burnley three years ago, and it will be interesting to see what Liverpool want for him if he does leave this summer.

An alternative for Rafa is to try to bring the striker in on loan for the season with an option to buy – that would be the low-cost way to judge whether Danny can make it at Newcastle.

We think he can, but there will be lots of clubs interested in signing him, including some on the continent.

The Guardian is reporting that Inter-Milan are currently monitoring the situation, while German clubs RB Leipzig, Schalke and Bayer Leverkusen are also interested.

We are hoping one of those clubs will be Newcastle, but we will need to move quickly to try to tie up a deal for Ings.

With the hierarchy moving at a snail’s pace this transfer window that’s unlikely to happen.

But we are very willing to be surprised on the upside and see Lee Charnley and team move quickly to get this lad signed up permanently  – or on loan.

He could definitely help solve our striker problem.

Rafa could definitely bring out the best in him.

Ings has been capped once by England back in October 2015 after signing on at Liverpool the previous summer.

That was just before he had his first serious ACL knee injury – picked up in the first ever training session under Liverpool’s new manager Jurgen Klopp.

He played 13 times for the England U21 side with 4 goals.

He would be an excellent signing for Newcastle.

Comments welcome.

    Why the foot would Mike Ashley do anything to benefit the club rather than himself?

    So, what has Mike Ashley done for our football club that hasn’t been done from necessity?

    He’s stripped it bare and brought it to its knees.

    There’s your starter Jail, I’m sure there’ll be more suggestions to come.

    Ashley has never forgot the furore from the time Keegan walked… blames Newcastle Supporters.. he put a statement out saying he and his family had been threatened, death threats , all lies from Ashley .

    No one stopped to ask him , was it in a letter Ash ? , this threat , or did some Newcastle fan whisper in your ear ?

    I knew then we were owned by a swine with no affinity towards Newcastle United football club and it’s supporters.

    Nothings changed.

    So stories from the Press about Ings wanting to leave Liverpool has nothing to do with stories about King coming to Newcastle then ?

    Nothing like a bit of competition created by the press for the press.

    Jail “Why the foot would Mike Ashley do anything to benefit the club rather than himself?”

    If the club can’t make signings because of FFP pressures, the value of the club goes down and that impacts his investment. He may be a muppet but he’s all about his investment at the moment. It’s all he’s ever been about, along with creaming off the commercial revenue.

    There’s no way he’s involved in preparing the accounts anyway, it’s all done by Barnes and his team I imagine, with Ashley’s brief in their ears. That brief being “make me money, make the club work, in that order, except for when the latter impacts the former”

    Online Guy: “Jibs now playing the part of the innocent man ! (who me?) With his one supporter.
    Reel yerself in Jib, your guilty as charged on crimes of derogatory unprovoked attacks on others.”

    The irony in that statement – is it intentional? So now one blogger of previously suspected dubious character gets to sit in judgement at a kangaroo court over another blogger and accuse him of doing exactly the same thing as he is in the process of doing himself?

    I’d say words fail me when clearly they haven’t, but sheesh….

    In Online and Jib, you have a near perfectly matched pair of narcissists, fantasists who weave a tangled web. Some would suggest that your interventions on Jib’s behalf may seem laudable, others may suggest though that they may be a tad misguided. No matter, they’re your prerogative.

    I can’t remember the game Austria vs Germany that was 0-0 but they apparently played out the most ‘,orrible game you’d ever seen. I wonder how Mexico Sweden played out had the Swedes managed a draw against Germany?

    geordietom,
    For me, all transfer talk seems superfluous until we know what’s happening with Rafa, we honestly can’t expect anyone to commit until we know what direction we’re heading in. Dubravka has just been guaranteed maybe 30K a week for four years, let’s be honest here, at 29 he doesn’t give a foot any more whether he gets a medal.

    Speculation and very little activitie is the norm at nufc. We all know how the fat man works, will there be new signings? Yes but not necessarily the players we really want or need. Comprises will be made again. Some players will go and need to, Joselu should be the first player out the door imo, but no doubt we’ll see more of his skills next season unfortunately.
    We had a brilliant season last season a few decent players in we can hopefully repeat it.

    I’m very intrigued by this little announcement about the extended season ticket renewal deadline. Why has it been put back? There might be a dull reason for it but I suspect there are many waiting for Rafa to be backed if they are going to commit.
    I haven’t renewed. There has been no evidence that Rafa is happy with the plan, if there is one, or happy with the general situation as he sees it, and that is a big influencing factor for me. I love the Toon and I’ve been going to the games all my life but I’m not gonna continue to be shafted when all the signs are Ashley’s mob are at it again.
    I won’t give up on my club, won’t stop going to games altogether, but I want to take back a bit of ‘control’.

    Mike Ashley has lowered Nufc expectations to such a level that we are now hoping for decent loan signings! We have one season left with Rafa. Don’t expect anything to change. Let’s enjoy it and give him something to remember.

    An issue that concerns me is if we are waiting for the PL money before we can sign any players, surely ash will know clubs will hold out for higher bids.

    Had ash used his own money straight after the window opened and then carried out an online bank transfer to his piggy bank once the PL payments were made – he would of saved a few quid.

    Which makes you wonder….”We tried but ran out of time, the PL payments took 7 working days to clear, then the players we were after were on holiday after the WC”

    Too many times ash has shafted Rafa, I think this will be Rafas last season with us unless there is a takeover .

    Imo

    Evening buddy
    I don’t believe for one minute that the transfer budget and transfer targets have not been agreed and identified , Even by Ashley’s standards that would be a joke.
    We are what 5-6 week off the start of the new season, Players coming back for pre season and still nothing. No news from any part of the club..Nothing which I find unnerving to say the least.
