Danny Ings on Roy Hodgson's radar

Published Add your comment

Roy Hodgson is considering giving Burnley star Danny Ings an England call-up, according to the Daily Star

Ings has been in prolific form this season, scoring eight goals for the Lancashire side and his performances have not gone unnoticed with the England boss.

Harry Kane is another uncapped striker who Hodgson is looking at but he may consider selecting both players for the 2016 European Championship Qualifier against Lithuania on March 27 at Wembley at the friendly against Italy in Turin four days later. 

The Daily Star also believe that, if selected, Ings will only be considered for the Italy friendly and not the Lithuania game. Hodgson will watch the 22-year-old over the coming weeks to assess whether he has the potential for an international future.

Ings' contract expires in the summer and he has been linked with moves to Liverpool and Tottenham. it is a far cry from five years ago when he spent two months on loan at Dorchester Town whilst playing for Bournemouth.

Burnley manager Sean Dyche has consistently backed calls for Ings to be selected for one of Hodgson's squads.

Speaking after Sunday's 2-2 draw with West Brom, he said: "He's a fine talent, there's no two ways about it and I can see why there's certain people in the media asking about England call-ups, not necessarily to start but in the squad and you can see why.

"He was excellent again today. He's effervescent, his movement, his quality at times. He's growing into the league and his understanding is improving."
