Liverpool agree deal to sign Burnley striker Danny Ings subject to a medical
Liverpool have announced the signing of Burnley striker Danny Ings, subject to a medical.
Ings, 22, had been linked with Manchester United and Real Sociedad with his Burnley contract set to expire this summer, but Liverpool have moved to secure the forward.
A statement on the club's official website read: "Liverpool FC are delighted to announce that they have agreed personal terms with Danny Ings and, subject to a medical, the striker will join the club on July 1 after his contract with Burnley has expired."
Ings enjoyed an impressive debut season in the Premier League with Burnley despite the Clarets' eventual relegation, scoring 11 goals in 35 top-flight appearances for Sean Dyche's side.
The forward is set to represent England at the upcoming European Under-21 Championships later this month before officially moving to Anfield at the start of July.
A statement on Burnley's official website read: "Burnley Football Club can confirm that Danny Ings has today agreed personal terms with Liverpool Football Club and, subject to a medical, will complete a move to Merseyside on July 1.
"Burnley Football Club has rejected an offer made by Liverpool, but will continue to have dialogue with the club in order to reach a resolution over the fee."
Ings will be Brendan Rodgers' second signing of the summer after securing England international James Milner on a free with his Manchester City contract also expiring this summer.
And sources told ESPN FC last week that Liverpool have also agreed a deal to sign Bolton goalkeeper Adam Bogdan on a free transfer.
