Southampton monitoring Burnley striker Ings ahead of boss decision

SOUTHAMPTON are continuing to monitor Burnley striker Danny Ings – but the identity of their new boss will determine whether they proceed with a bid.

Saints are understood to be considering a potential move for Ings this summer after executive director Les Reed was given the go-ahead to draw up a list of possible transfer targets.

The south coast club will be in the market for a striker following the £4m sale of Rickie Lambert to Liverpool and their coffers are expected to be boosted further during the off-season, with Luke Shaw and Adam Lallana both the subject of multi-million pound bids.

Ings only has a year left on his contract at Burnley and is yet to sign a new deal, after scoring 26 goals during the 2013/14 season to help fire the Clarets into the Premier League.

The 21-year-old hails from the south coast and was released by Southampton as a schoolboy, moving on to Bournemouth. His former Burnley team-mate Jay Rodriguez previously made the move to St Mary’s.

Southampton are believed to have discussed what type of players the club require to strengthen their squad with Mauricio Pochettino before his departure for Tottenham, and are currently perusing the market for suitable targets.

But they will allow their new manager to make the final decision on which players to sign, and have already stressed that they expect no player movements in or out before a boss is appointed.

That is expected to happen next week, with Dutch legend Ronald Koeman among those in the frame for the job.

But even if they decided to press ahead with a move, they will have to deal with a club determined to hang on to Ings – with the Clarets preparing for life in the top flight.

Although the forward has a year left on his contract and Burnley were previously forced to sell Rodriguez and Charlie Austin in similar situations, the club’s promotion to the Premier League puts them in a much stronger position.

The Clarets still want to agree a new contract with Ings and they can also afford to put a higher valuation on the player this summer because of the proceeds they are due to receive from promotion.

Even if his deal expired and he departed next summer, Burnley would be due a compensation fee because he would be under 23.

Meanwhile, the Clarets are being linked with Cardiff City midfielder Don Cowie, who worked with Sean Dyche at Watford.

The 31-year-old is out of contract this summer and, although he has been offered a new deal by the Welsh club, he has said he is unsure of his future under boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

Rangers, Huddersfield Town and his former club Watford are also reported to be interested.

If Ings has to be sold, I hope not to Southampton - I have them down as one of our relegation rivals.

With or without Ings, we have a fair chance of finishing above Saints who are selling most of their best players. Ings would be going to a club in turmoil.

Agree with the above, a comfortable mid-table finish.

Sean Dyche to sign an extension to his contract along with Danny Ings, and then onto the job of recruitment towards the end of the month. Vokes and Tripper having already committed for a further three years. Lots of rumours about Ings to Newcastle and Southampton but nothing in it. I'd rather have a team of players who are coveted by Premier League sides than a team of overpaid thugs and alleged rapists who are being chased by a team that's just come up from the Scottish third tier.

If Southampton want him then £10 million plus.

**** them, we don't have to sell so it is definitely worth hanging on to him until January at least.

I am confident he will follow Trippier and Dyche by signing a new contract at Burnley though - if not then see ya, we will replace him as we did with Rodriguez and Austin.

Oh dear dingles, its squeaky bum time for you.

I would have thought the new manage would take a punt on him because its only a £1.5 million gamble if he fails to produce for Saints. They can also strengthen in other areas then.

Anyway enjoy your day Douche worshippers and remember to there is a product called toilet paper that can be used to wipe your bum bums, you don't have to use your dingle shirts

Are you high? But in all seriousness he's out of contract at the end of the season, so would it not be best to a fee now and replace him than let him go for nothing?

And £10 million for a player with 1 year remaining.....come on....

There always used to be one kid in every class like this. Nobody found them funny, after 3-4 years of irritation the rest of the kids learned to ignore them. At high school they got their own classroom with 7-8 other equally annoying but now recognised as damaged kids. They sort of disappeared after school, nobody saw them for years later.

Then, one by one these isolated and socially rejected individuals found the internet. A chance after decades to besseriously. Except they never quite get it. Unable to string together a sentence or hide their bitterness they invariably post bile and nonsense.

Ings is contracted to BFC. If he goes then that'll be in the clubs and his own interest. There's nothing we can do but hope he would rather have a PL year with us. He's not going to sign for Blackburn anytime soon. The situation there makes it less likely that players of this quality will play there. Hurtful as that is to our blue and white friends, it's just how it is. If Rovers can keep the quality in their squad they should be looking at top 6-8 at least. It's a big if. But there's just no need, as you no doubt were told from the age of 5 and have been reminded of ever since, to take out your problems on other people. Many Blackburn fans even find this sort of nonsense embarassing now.

Can I have a bucket full of the **** you are on?

Let's remind you, your transfer budget; including salaries, is just £16 million, the going rate for a decent strikers salary in the PL is over £35 per week, that is what a player of Ings quality will demand as a minimum.

Southampton are renown for bringing their own players through and signing up and coming British players, true they are selling the majority of the current best players, but they are all moving on to better clubs and Southampton will pull in in excess of £100 million from those transfers, added I might add to their earnings from last season in the PL.

Their transfer budget is going to make yours look like pocket money.

West Brom just need a decent manager to clear out the dross, I see you are still in for one of them.

Not sure about Swansea I must admit.

Hull and Palace are decent teams, not world beaters but they are not easy to beat, both now have a hard season in the PL behind them and because of that the financial clout that gives them.

I felt Sunderland were in a false position last season and in Poyet they have a decent manager with excellent contacts in the game, plus money in the bank.

Villa are the only side in the ones you mention above that you might have a chance of finishing above, simply because they are run on a shoestring budget as well, they are very poor indeed, but their fan base is quadruple yours.

You might get off to a decent start, I honestly hope you do, but it all depends on your first half dozen fixtures, who you are against home or away.

I am not being tribal here, clubs like ours are at a massive disadvantage now and if Rovers are lucky enough to go up next season I will be making exactly the same comparisons.

They seem to know the wages of players and indeed the intentions of many. Or perhaps by posting such nonsense all they really do is show the world they know the square root of not much? Grow up boys you're letting it all show.

Rob, lets put it this way, in your world it's OK for something like "Look up Blackburn" in one of his myriad identities to go on the Rovers threads, post the same drivel, use the same words and phrases as "Ewood legend", insult all and sundry but any (so called) Rovers fan doing the same on here gets chastised?

Double standards methinks.

Can I have a bucket full of the **** you are on?

Let's remind you, your transfer budget; including salaries, is just £16 million, the going rate for a decent strikers salary in the PL is over £35 per week, that is what a player of Ings quality will demand as a minimum.

Southampton are renown for bringing their own players through and signing up and coming British players, true they are selling the majority of the current best players, but they are all moving on to better clubs and Southampton will pull in in excess of £100 million from those transfers, added I might add to their earnings from last season in the PL.

Their transfer budget is going to make yours look like pocket money.

West Brom just need a decent manager to clear out the dross, I see you are still in for one of them.

Not sure about Swansea I must admit.

Hull and Palace are decent teams, not world beaters but they are not easy to beat, both now have a hard season in the PL behind them and because of that the financial clout that gives them.

I felt Sunderland were in a false position last season and in Poyet they have a decent manager with excellent contacts in the game, plus money in the bank.

Villa are the only side in the ones you mention above that you might have a chance of finishing above, simply because they are run on a shoestring budget as well, they are very poor indeed, but their fan base is quadruple yours.

You might get off to a decent start, I honestly hope you do, but it all depends on your first half dozen fixtures, who you are against home or away.

I am not being tribal here, clubs like ours are at a massive disadvantage now and if Rovers are lucky enough to go up next season I will be making exactly the same comparisons.
Come on then - explain how you know what our transfer plus salary budget is?

What;s that - YOU DON'T?

'the going rate for a decent strikers salary in the PL is over £35 per week' Really? decent players earn more than £35 per week? So do I!!

What has fan base got to do with a successful team? Look at Leeds

Also what have Poyet's contacts in the game and the fact that Sunderland have 'money in the bank' got to do with anything? - Poyet's side played good in their last six games and pretty **** terrible in the other 32.

We will be fine, I honestly believe we will stay up, and despite no-nothing nay-sayers sticking pins in the Burnley dolls and hoping for us to fail - we will stay up.

Correct, I always enjoyed reading the Rovers news and comments, until certain posters (under different identities) cam on giving us fans grief and being out of order, which spoilt my reading.

I complained to the paper and editor on many occasions and even messaged the perpetrator(s) asking if they would see reason and stop- I may have well banged my head against a wall because it was like talking to a 5 year old and was completely pointless.

Anyway in the end I though I may as well get some enjoyment myself and see how they react- which has proved a success because its having the same affect on these pages as on ours!

I'm up for a bit of banter as long as its not personal or too far, but unfortunately until somebody can get a grip and stop this its going to continue.

Please stop your fans coming on our pages and being out of order and I will be over the moon to stop.

It was actually published on here at the end of the season (when promotion was certain) that your board were to allow Dyche £16 million transfer kitty, I took the mick then and will quite happily continue to do so.

I don't live in Blackburn, have never been in a minicab office in my life and am a retired technical and production manager hence my avatar name, BTW, I live in Darwen and have been retired for 5 years this October having worked for 43 years solid.

I don't pretend to know which players earn what, but I know Rooney is on circa £300k a week because I have seen it in black and white, I also use specific websites like sporting intelligence and similar to carry out my research.

£25 to £40k a week is pretty standard for a reasonable but not exceptional striker in the PL.

BTW, you don't get the alleged £120 million up front, you are allowed to take out a short term loan against £25% or so of potential earnings this coming season otherwise apart from that I think you are restricted by FFP as to what you can spend, (I'm not absolutely certain about the FFP bit if it applies directly to promoted clubs).

This is why I continually say that clubs like ours will struggle to survive in the PL. If you want to put up a reasoned argument against me please feel free to do so.

£25 to £40k a week is pretty standard for a reasonable but not exceptional striker in the PL.

BTW, you don't get the alleged £120 million up front, you are allowed to take out a short term loan against £25% or so of potential earnings this coming season otherwise apart from that I think you are restricted by FFP as to what you can spend, (I'm not absolutely certain about the FFP bit if it applies directly to promoted clubs).

This is why I continually say that clubs like ours will struggle to survive in the PL. If you want to put up a reasoned argument against me please feel free to do so.

Never has there been an article printed showing any kind of quotes from anyone at Burnley giving our transfer budget - what kind of fantasy island do you live on, that a Premier League club would announce their budget to a tinpot local paper's hack?

Basically you are full of **** and are making it up as you go along.

As always, pointless, fruitless empty. There's an old saying - there are three sorts of judgement. Good judgement, bad judgement and no judgement . I've never met a "no judgement" member like you before Bellend. And its not an honour.
Rob, lets put it this way, in your world it's OK for something like "Look up Blackburn" in one of his myriad identities to go on the Rovers threads, post the same drivel, use the same words and phrases as "Ewood legend", insult all and sundry but any (so called) Rovers fan doing the same on here gets chastised?

Double standards methinks.

There are always idiots and these two are no exception, in fact I have long suspected they are the same troll, they stifle debate and reasoned argument with their inane comments and insults on both sides of the fence.

They are best ignored and never replied to directly, by replying to them you simply justify their moronic existence.

I actually tried to reason with the Burnley version in it's Weluvyouvenky's mode, that was a totally pointless exercise if there ever was one.
Correct, I always enjoyed reading the Rovers news and comments, until certain posters (under different identities) cam on giving us fans grief and being out of order, which spoilt my reading.

I complained to the paper and editor on many occasions and even messaged the perpetrator(s) asking if they would see reason and stop- I may have well banged my head against a wall because it was like talking to a 5 year old and was completely pointless.

Anyway in the end I though I may as well get some enjoyment myself and see how they react- which has proved a success because its having the same affect on these pages as on ours!

I'm up for a bit of banter as long as its not personal or too far, but unfortunately until somebody can get a grip and stop this its going to continue.

Please stop your fans coming on our pages and being out of order and I will be over the moon to stop.

Thanks

OK so your evidence is taken from a local paper, the nation's wonderfully reliable dailys and an internet site.

Next time we need some accurate data on say nuclear technology we know who to call. But on football it's all the usual heresay and whispers.

Let's take this 16 million - transfers, wages or both? This 120 million, when is the first installment, how much is it and how much and when are the 6 after that? Does your evidence based 16 million include any anticipated income from sales, is it reliant on wage reductions as players leave? If say Ings was sold for 6 million would it go up to 22?

You simply don't know. But don't let that get in the way like.

A short history lesson for the no-dads 95'ers....


Having beaten Stade de Reims to reach the quarter-finals of the European Cup, Burnley learned on 6th December 1960 that their next opponents would be the West German champions Hamburg.

The big news ahead of the draw was of Real Madrid's defeat in the previous round. They had been the only winners to date of the competition and so in 1961 there would be a new name on the trophy with Burnley already installed as second favourites behind Barcelona, the Catalan team having beaten Real Madrid.

Burnley had taken a 2-0 lead to France in the previous round for the second leg against Reims, eventually winning through 4-3 on aggregate. They were hoping they might just be able to get the same sort of lead against the West Germans who included some star players such as the brilliant centre forward Uwe Seeler, who would go on to captain his country, his brother Dieter and captain Jochen Meinke.

It was Burnley's night in what was described as one of Turf Moor's greatest ever matches.

The game was the talk of the town and the football world, such was the quality of Burnley's performance. Pilkington had his best and most effective game and he crowned it with two tremendous shots. His second, from the wing, was one of the best of his career.

Then there was the mighty Miller, who came into prominent power in the second half when he was hard hit by body charging and hacking which had him making indentations in the mud. But the harder Miller was hit, the more he seemed to enjoy it.

Hamburg's defence was always suspect under the varied tactics of the Burnley attack who went in front after just seven minutes from a long throw-in by Joyce that McIlroy gave to Pointer He transferred it to PILKINGTON who gave us the lead.

On the hour it was 2-0 with a second PILKINGTON goal. This time it was a right foot screamer into the far top corner before goalkeeper Schnoor could hardly move. He was mesmerised by the speed.

Pointer then had a header stopped but before Schnoor could pounce, ROBSON had the ball over the line and Burnley were 3-0 up.

Then, with five minutes to go, a quiet oft-tried move created an opening and DӦRFEL was through with Blacklaw beaten for once. It gave the Hamburg supporters their one moment of glory which they took with waving flags while one character celebrated with a solo on a tin trumpet.

Substitute the word 'fancy' with the word 'pray' and you will be more accurate, doesn't mean it is even likely to happen though does it?

Sean Dyche is preparing to sign an extended contract with Burnley this summer after positive talks over a new deal. Dyche penned a two-and-a-half-year contract with the Clarets when he was appointed as boss in October 2012.

That deal has a year remaining but discussions have been held over an extended contract and Dyche is understood to be happy to reaffirm his commitment to Burnley. It is understood that Dyche is extremely happy to continue in his current role at Burnley.

A short history lesson for the no-dads 95'ers....


Having beaten Stade de Reims to reach the quarter-finals of the European Cup, Burnley learned on 6th December 1960 that their next opponents would be the West German champions Hamburg.

The big news ahead of the draw was of Real Madrid's defeat in the previous round. They had been the only winners to date of the competition and so in 1961 there would be a new name on the trophy with Burnley already installed as second favourites behind Barcelona, the Catalan team having beaten Real Madrid.

Burnley had taken a 2-0 lead to France in the previous round for the second leg against Reims, eventually winning through 4-3 on aggregate. They were hoping they might just be able to get the same sort of lead against the West Germans who included some star players such as the brilliant centre forward Uwe Seeler, who would go on to captain his country, his brother Dieter and captain Jochen Meinke.

It was Burnley's night in what was described as one of Turf Moor's greatest ever matches.

The game was the talk of the town and the football world, such was the quality of Burnley's performance. Pilkington had his best and most effective game and he crowned it with two tremendous shots. His second, from the wing, was one of the best of his career.

Then there was the mighty Miller, who came into prominent power in the second half when he was hard hit by body charging and hacking which had him making indentations in the mud. But the harder Miller was hit, the more he seemed to enjoy it.

Hamburg's defence was always suspect under the varied tactics of the Burnley attack who went in front after just seven minutes from a long throw-in by Joyce that McIlroy gave to Pointer He transferred it to PILKINGTON who gave us the lead.

On the hour it was 2-0 with a second PILKINGTON goal. This time it was a right foot screamer into the far top corner before goalkeeper Schnoor could hardly move. He was mesmerised by the speed.

Pointer then had a header stopped but before Schnoor could pounce, ROBSON had the ball over the line and Burnley were 3-0 up.

Then, with five minutes to go, a quiet oft-tried move created an opening and DӦRFEL was through with Blacklaw beaten for once. It gave the Hamburg supporters their one moment of glory which they took with waving flags while one character celebrated with a solo on a tin trumpet.

Another European memory...

Spartak Moscow 3 Blackburn Rovers 0

Blackburn's woeful European Champions' League campaign plumbed new depths yesterday when even the dismissal of Colin Hendry during this comprehensive defeat by Spartak was overshadowed by an extraordinary fight between two Blackburn players, Graeme Le Saux and David Batty.

The two squared up to each other after just four minutes with the game still goalless. They clattered into one another as the ball ran into touch, traded insults, moved on to pushing and shoving and then Le Saux appeared to throw a left hook into Batty's throat. Tim Sherwood, the Blackburn captain, raced in to separate them as Le Saux appeared to be winding up for another blow.

If the Batty-Le Saux incident established a new low in Rovers' European campaign, the game emphasised familiar failings with Spartak winning easily with goals from Dmitri Alenitchev, Yuri Nikiforov and Ramiz Mamedov. Le Saux could be held to blame for all three, and was substituted soon after the third, with what Harford said was a hand injury.

Blackburn Rovers 0 - 1 Trelleborgs

Blackburn Rovers first incursion into Europe threatens to be a short-lived one after they suffered a shattering home defeat in their Uefa Cup first round first leg tie last night.

Facing a team of Swedish part- timers thought to provide only warm-up opposition, Rovers now find themselves in grave danger of going out of the competition.

A 71st-minute goal from Fredrik Sandell, taken with the composure displayed by Trelleborgs all night, capped an intelligent, well-planned display by the Swedish part timers..

By any other criteria they have nothing like the pedigree of Jack Walker's expensively-assemble
d side. While Rovers cost £30m to build, the Swedish side, which contains no current internationals, cost next to nothing.

It seemed such a mismatch several journalists came armed with details of Blackburn's record win but within 15 minutes it was clear that statistic would not be required. By then the local radio commentator was already stating somewhat lamely 'they are not being overrun yet' as Blackburn failed to muster a single shot.

Ings was on 12 grand a week this last season, its all available online, you've just got to know hown to use a computer, that may take you a while. Whilst I'm not Ings agent you are correct in that I was the first person to say he wanted out.

Now if a Rover on a thread about Rovers said maybe top 10 max next year I'd expect some other either more optimistic or pessimistic fan of that club to go either side.

But the fact that this good fan is saying something that is really part optimism, part based on watching people and pundits being proved wrong - yet gets stalked - creepy stalker style as in only by really sad, empty, bored, friendless stalkers are good at, by a fan with nothing of any value whatsoever to add - well that's Blackburn.

Ings would be an ideal signing for Southampton. He fits their model of signing young, ambitious players who want to better themselves. In many ways similar to when they signed little known Ricky Lambert from Bristol Rovers several years ago.

Having now sold Lambert on to Liverpool they need a replacement. Given that Ings only has 12 months left to run on his deal and is on a miniscule wage by modern day standards, means that £4-5 million and a doubling of his £12k a week wage should get the deal over the line.

£4-5 million and £20k a week for an England under 21 international is decent business. As already mentioned, Burnley are in a very weak position, because if they don't sell this summer then Ings could well be on his way for nothing in 12 months. Talk by some of demanding £10 million for him is frankly laughable for a player who has had one good Championship season in his career.

Burnley were in the same boat 12 months ago with Charlie Austin, and ended up selling him off to a rival team on the eve of the season. Why did they not learn from that debacle and get Ings tied down long term?

Then there's the lure of Ings returning home to the South Coast, and it all makes perfect sense. Expecting Scott Arfield to step in and take the Premier League by storm might be a little far fetched, and Ashley Barnes career at Burnley so far has been underwhelming to say the least.
Ings would be an ideal signing for Southampton. He fits their model of signing young, ambitious players who want to better themselves. In many ways similar to when they signed little known Ricky Lambert from Bristol Rovers several years ago. Having now sold Lambert on to Liverpool they need a replacement. Given that Ings only has 12 months left to run on his deal and is on a miniscule wage by modern day standards, means that £4-5 million and a doubling of his £12k a week wage should get the deal over the line. £4-5 million and £20k a week for an England under 21 international is decent business.

Of particular concern are the activities of Barry Foulds from Wilpshire. A worthless degenerate who thinks it's funny to gleefully run off to the other side of the playground wearing a different hat in the hopes that everyone is as dim as him and think there's more of them than there actually is.

There's enough source material here to provide a whole Psychology Conference with the sort of case studies they'd relish diving in to.
More than 71 eh, you mean you counted them, are you autistic?
You looking' in the mirror again Smeagul? Or is it Gollum?

I think though they don't and like the amazing 120 million don't know much about football at all.

They seem to know the wages of players and indeed the intentions of many. Or perhaps by posting such nonsense all they really do is show the world they know the square root of not much? Grow up boys you're letting it all show.
It was actually published on here at the end of the season (when promotion was certain) that your board were to allow Dyche £16 million transfer kitty, I took the mick then and will quite happily continue to do so.

I don't live in Blackburn, have never been in a minicab office in my life and am a retired technical and production manager hence my avatar name, BTW, I live in Darwen and have been retired for 5 years this October having worked for 43 years solid.

I don't pretend to know which players earn what, but I know Rooney is on circa £300k a week because I have seen it in black and white, I also use specific websites like sporting intelligence and similar to carry out my research.

£25 to £40k a week is pretty standard for a reasonable but not exceptional striker in the PL.

BTW, you don't get the alleged £120 million up front, you are allowed to take out a short term loan against £25% or so of potential earnings this coming season otherwise apart from that I think you are restricted by FFP as to what you can spend, (I'm not absolutely certain about the FFP bit if it applies directly to promoted clubs).

This is why I continually say that clubs like ours will struggle to survive in the PL. If you want to put up a reasoned argument against me please feel free to do so.
OK so your evidence is taken from a local paper, the nation's wonderfully reliable dailys and an internet site.

Next time we need some accurate data on say nuclear technology we know who to call. But on football it's all the usual heresay and whispers.

Let's take this 16 million - transfers, wages or both? This 120 million, when is the first installment, how much is it and how much and when are the 6 after that? Does your evidence based 16 million include any anticipated income from sales, is it reliant on wage reductions as players leave? If say Ings was sold for 6 million would it go up to 22?

You simply don't know. But don't let that get in the way like.
If you do want a discourse on nuclear technology I would be happy to oblige.

Where would you like to start?
