Aston Villa and Newcastle join race for Championship star

Danny IngsAston Villa, Crystal Palace, Sunderland and Newcastle are all tracking Burnley striker Danny Ings, according to reports from the Daily Star.

The Premier League quartet have all been impressed with the 21-year-old’s Championship displays and are believed to be ready to make serious moves for his signature in January.

However, the Clarets are desperate to keep their latest star after allowing Charlie Austin and Jay Rodriguez to leave in recent times.

The pair fetched a combined £11m, which has reduced the club’s need to sell.

As a result, they will slap a £7m valuation on Ings in a bid to fend off any potential bids.

The former Bournemouth man has bagged an impressive seven goals so far this season to help Burnley up to fourth position.

This has alerted top tier sides, with Villa, Palace, Sunderland and Newcastle all interested.

The North East duo are both believed to be keen to add to their attacking ranks once the transfer window opens, while the forward fits Villa boss Paul Lambert’s player profile.

The Eagles are also keen, with Ian Holloway desperate to add a guaranteed source of goals to his team in a bid to keep his side clear of relegation.

Could Danny Ings be a Premier League hit?
