Fans will not forget about Danny Ings, former Southampton midfielder Carlton Palmer has told Football FanCast.
The 29-year-old joined Aston Villa in a shock move last month, bringing his three-year spell at St Mary’s to an end.
Ings did a great job leading the line for the Saints following his arrival from Liverpool. In total, he scored 46 goals in 100 games for the club – 22 of those coming in the 2019/20 Premier League season.
Southampton moved to replace him by bringing in Adam Armstrong, who has impressed so far, grabbing a goal on his debut against Everton. Even so, Palmer does not believe the St Mary’s faithful will forget about Ings just like that.
“I don’t think you forget about Ings because he was a good servant and he’s a good player,” the ex-England international said. “But things move on, don’t they? It’s done, it’s finished, it’s moved on. Armstrong can score goals.”
Like Armstrong, Ings has also made a good start to life in his new surroundings. The Villa man has already scored twice in the Premier League this season, the latest a spectacular strike against Newcastle United at Villa Park.
In an ideal world for Ralph Hasenhuttl, the Southampton manager would have both English strikers at his disposal.
