Liverpool have this morning announced the signing of Burnley forward Danny Ings, subject to a medical, via their official website.
Liverpool have long been linked with the England U21 goal scorer, set to appear in the European Under 21 Championships later this month, and have now secured his signature.
The deal will not be completed until Ings' Burnley contract expires at the end of June and Liverpool are also set to pay Burnley a 'compensation' fee due to Ings' age, and that fee is still to be confirmed by the two clubs.
Ings has enjoyed an excellent debut season in the Premier League in 2014-15 for Burnley, scoring 11 League goals, however following Burnley's relegation Ings was always likely to stay in the top flight.
Ings' arrival at Anfield has been Liverpool's second signing in a week for the confirmation of James Milner's arrival from Manchester City.
Ings will join up with Liverpool in pre-season, following his involvement with England, but his role at the club is still unclear as Daniel Sturridge's return to fitness will offer real competition if Liverpool chose to play a lone forward.
The capture of Ings is likely to see the departure of Rickie Lambert, who endured a torrid campaign in 2014/15.
