Liverpool's attempts of signing £8million-rated Burnley striker Danny Ings have hit a brick wall as the Lancashire outfit have stated the Championship star is not for sale.
Ings has been linked with a move to the Premier League due to the fine form he has shown for Burnley over the course of the first six months of the campaign.
The Englishman has scored 16 goals in 24 games for Burnley so far this season, which has boosted his side's chance of promotion and has helped Sean Dyche's side overcome the loss of Charlie Austin to QPR.
The Daily Mail claimed last week that Liverpool were among a host of sides who were keen on enticing Ings away from Turf Moor.
Premier League trio Newcastle, Stoke and Aston Villa were also said to be in the race to sign Liverpool target Ings, however Burnley boss Dyche believes the England Under-21 star will stay at the Clarets until the end of the season.
Speaking to the Lancashire Telegraph, Dyche said on the possibility of Ings leaving in January.
“It’s been an ongoing thing ever since he came to the club to be honest.
“It’s a natural occurrence when players are doing well at any club at any level there’s always someone who’s looking around. I’m not worried about that.
“It’s good there are people interested in our players. I don’t envisage him leaving, I’ve certainly got no reason to think that will happen – certainly not in January. Who knows in the future. But every player eventually has their price.”
