Having joined Liverpool in 2015 from Burnley, Danny Ings’ career at Anfield has rather unfortunately been blighted by the injury curse.
The England international suffered the unfortunate luck of having his time with the Reds disrupted by two long-term injuries and in the end managed just four goals in his 25 appearances for the club.
Now, as confirmed by the club’s official website, following a loan spell at Premier League rivals Southampton last season, Ings has completed a permanent switch to St Mary’s this summer.

After hearing the news, Liverpool fans took to Twitter to share their thoughts and many wished Ings well on his future after sympathising with his injury plight at Anfield.
Indeed, some seemed to suggest that had the 26-year-old stayed injury-free, then he could have become a “special player” and voiced their regret at not really seeing the best of him on Merseyside.
A few Reds fans wishing the striker well also urged him not to score against his former club however, whilst there was also plenty of praise for director of football Michael Edwards, thanks to the reported £20m transfer fee.
