Liverpool have confirmed they have reached an agreement to sign Burnley striker Danny Ings this summer.

The Clarets are entitled to compensation for the transfer but at this time the clubs are yet to agree a fee.

Brendan Rodgers faced tough competition for the signature of Ings with the likes of Tottenham, Manchester United and Real Sociedad also in the hunt for the 22-year-old.

Ings earns big-money move

The England Under-21 international scored 11 goals for Sean Dyche's side, becoming the fifth highest English scorer in the Premier League for the 2014-15 season - but his goals could not save Burnley from relegation.

Liverpool forwards Daniel Sturridge, Mario Balotelli, Rickie Lambert and Fabio Borini did not live up to the bill, as combined they scored eight goals between them, consequently giving the Reds a sixth place finish in the Premier League.

Compare that to the 2013-14 season where their two strikers -  Sturridge and Luis Suarez - scored 52 times and the team scored 101 goals just narrowly missing out on the title.

Burnley have been quick to come out and say: "We have rejected an offer made by Liverpool, but will continue to have dialogue with the club in order to reach a resolution over the fee."

Ings joined Burnley from Bournemouth in 2011 and went on to play 130 games scoring a healthy 43 goals in the process.
