Clarets striker search nearing end

Published Add your comment

Bournemouth teenager Danny Ings is close to completing a move to Burnley after the two clubs agreed an undisclosed fee.

The young striker has been linked with a number of clubs since breaking into the Cherries' first team last season, and is understood to have been watched by sides from the Barclays Premier League.

But Burnley appear to have won the race for the signature of Ings, who will link up with his former boss at Dean Court, Eddie Howe, subject to agreeing terms and passing a medical.

"We've agreed a fee and we will be delighted if we get to sign Danny - he's a talented player," Howe told BBC Radio Lancashire.

"Danny is a very talented young player, he's only just turned 19 and is very highly thought of.

"Other clubs, including Premier League clubs wanted to sign him so if we do get him it will be a good signing I hope."

Ings impressed with his quick feet and eye for goal after being drafted into the Bournemouth side for the second half of last season - scoring five times in the final seven games of the campaign to seal the Cherries a spot in the npower League One playoffs.

And, despite missing a penalty in the semi-final first leg against Huddersfield, Ings netted in the second fixture - although it wasn't enough to seal the south-coast side a place in the final.

Ings will join Marvin Bartley in following Howe from Bournemouth to Turf Moor
