Burnley striker Ings not sidetracked by speculation

Lancashire Telegraph: Danny Ings Danny Ings

STAR striker Danny Ings insists he will not allow himself to be sidetracked by speculation about his career.

The Clarets ace has been linked with a number of top flight clubs since firing Burnley to promotion, leaving the club in a similar predicament to the previous two summers when rumours were rife about the futures of Jay Rodriguez and Charlie Austin.

Like Ings, both ended respective seasons as top scorer, with Rodriguez going on to complete a record move to Southampton in the summer of 2012, and Austin being sold to QPR on the eve of last season.

Ings’ name has already been mentioned as a target for the likes of Liverpool, Southampton and Spurs.

But the striker, who is preparing for England Under 21 duty tonight in the European Under 21 Championship clash with Wales in Swansea, insists it is a season in the top flight at Turf Moor that he is relishing, and has no qualms about the rumours.

“I don’t need to handle it. I’m just enjoying my football. I’ve still got a year left on my contract and I’m a player for Burnley Football Club.

“I love it here so I’m just going to concentrate on that.

“It’s a family club and a great club to play for. It’s a fantastic club. And I’m so proud of the lads and how well they’ve done this season.

“I live quite locally so I see a lot of fans and they show their appreciation for the whole team, not just me, and it's a great feeling to be a part of that. There are no egos at this club. Everyone’s in it together, it’s like one big family.”

Ings faced a difficult introduction to life at Turf Moor following his £1million-plus move from Bournemouth in August 2011 as he suffered a serious knee injury in only his second training session.

He recovered to end the season in the side but endured a second lengthy lay-off with a knee problem after a challenge in Burnley’s final friendly with Rochdale the following pre-season.

The striker returned to the squad in October and made a total of 33 appearances.

He led the way up front last term following Austin’s exit, with 26 league and cup goals, ably assisted by 21-goal strike partner Sam Vokes.

The pair were pivotal in Burnley’s promotion push, and now Ings cannot wait to make his Premier League bow.

“It’s the best league in the world,” said the 21-year-old, who admitted he is already counting down the days to the fixtures being released next month.

“I’m really looking forward to it.

“It’s every lad’s dream to play there and that first game is going to be unbelievable,” he said.

“It's going to be a great feeling and I’m going to enjoy every moment of it.”

Can be interpreted several ways;

"I have one year on my contract" = "Get your finger out and make me an offer I can't refuse or I am off".

Being the one I see hidden away in the PC speak.

As the Burnley board have already demonstrated with their outrageous season ticket prices, if any club makes a decent cash offer for a player out of contract in 12 months time then Ings will be off.

Having Premier League status changes nothing on that front, other than perhaps enabling the board to command a slightly higher fee than they would have done had Burnley been in the Championship next season.

Its a shame that whilst the true Burnley supporters who stuck with them in the Championship are looking forward to the best season in their lifetimes all the board are bothered about is cashing in on the Premier League like they did last time.

Words you never hear associated with the players of Blackburn Rovers football club.

In response to the desperate no-dads above, there is no better place for Ings to continue his development as a pivotal player in Sean Dyche's premier league plans. To stay with Burnley and play his part in keeping this team up would add millions to his future transfer value. He could make the move now of course but I can't see him wanting to play a bit-part in his first crack at the Premier League. He will want to be playing every game. A new contract is likely to be offered and I see him being happy to sign it.

A future England striker and he play's for Burnley FC. That's what hurts the fatherless ones the most.

Ha ha ha ha ha, look at the two posts on this article, both by bitter and deluded Blackburn supporters, disillusioned with their own board systematically ripping apart their pathetic club piece by piece.

We'll be fine, our board have put the prices up, and whether that is right or wrong will be determined over time.

Now run along and wait for the inevitable firesale that will happen this summer as you try and prepare for FFP and a life of poverty in the Chumpionship. Good luck with your League One freebies and rejects that will make up the majority of your team come next season when Rhodes, Hanley, Cairney and anyone who can get out of your sorry little club are sold to save money.

it is really pathetic to watch you struggling to hang onto your bigger and better rival's coat tails as you bumble along as a middling little Division Two club - just like you were before the Fat One lost his mind and blew his savings on your sorry, excuse of a club.

Blackburn, back where they belong.

Theres no need for Ings to leave.
If we failed to get promotion then it would have been a big possibility.
But I think he will spend next year with Burnley in the Premier Leauge, where he is going to start 9/10 games & get a good grip on the leauge, then if we fail to stay up I imagine he would leave.

Loving the biterness of rovers fans, once Jordan Rhodes of Jordan Rhodes FC leaves it back to basics for you!

Ha ha ha ha - it is like shooting fish in a barrel with these dumb Blackburn cave-dwellers.

Some Rovers fans on social media sites have even tipped themselves to 'walk the Championship' next season (An actual quote) - this is from a club that had their best run of the season at the end and it took them to their highest position of the season, a measly EIGHTH, just the 23 points behind Burnley.
Once your best players (I use the term loosely) leave you will be forced to live on what freebies and rejects that your inspirational, motivational, manager can replace them with, and then BANG on comes FFP to kick you in the stones.

You couldn't even trouble the top six all season, and do you know the highest position you have been in this league since your relegation from the Premier League? - You were SECOND when you sacked Steve Kean, and you have never ever troubled the play off positions since that fateful day.
If only your board hadn't been so trigger happy and kept hold of the legend that is Steve Kean, you may have been back in the promised land just like your bigger and better neighbours from down the road.

I was pleasantly surprised when I came on this story that there are so few comments by Rovers fans. I even made a bet with a mate that I could quote what had been put before I saw it.
I agree with the majority of posts on here that Ingsy is better suited staying at least for another season as he will (subject to injury of course) probably play every game, which is more than top strikers do at these over-stocked "bigger" clubs. Unless you are simply after the money it is better to play every week than make the odd appearance as a sub or in a league cup game. Of course there is the possibility that he might not make the grade in the top flight but I wouldn't bet against him doing so. It is important though that the board make him a good offer on his contract so that if he were to leave in a year or so he wouldn't go for nothing.
I expect him to stay, unless someone makes a ridiculous offer for a player yet to set foot in the prem. As for the Rovers posts (not many, thankfully) I would be worrying more about the only player you have capable of achieving anything at all. Your team of also rans and rejects (and your charismatic manager) would be all the worse for his absence.

Danny Ings wants to play in the Premier League, Burnley are..... in the Premier League. Ings can be the main man and play in every Premier League game. He has a fantastic relationship with the club, the manager and the fans. The club stood by Danny for two full seasons through his recuperation from serious injury. I believe this will also factor in any decision he makes.

However, I will humour you.. let's say as you continue to insist that we lose Danny Ings, how would you then feel if we moved to bring in Jordan Rhodes who has been recently linked with a move to Turf Moor as his replacement? Rhodes of course would jump at a move to a bigger club in the Premier League.

I think it's in the interests of all Blackburn Rovers fans that Danny Ings stays at Burnley because the necessity to bring in a replacement could well be the straw that breaks the camels back as regards Blackburn's future.

I would certainly hate to lose a players of Ings ability either this season or next, but I think the blow would be softened somewhat by seeing you morons realising that it directly affects you holding onto your one star player.

Hilarious.

Having Premier League status changes nothing on that front, other than perhaps enabling the board to command a slightly higher fee than they would have done had Burnley been in the Championship next season.

Its a shame that whilst the true Burnley supporters who stuck with them in the Championship are looking forward to the best season in their lifetimes all the board are bothered about is cashing in on the Premier League like they did last time.
Make it up as you go along, why don't you. Didn't do logic sequencing at Oxford did you!

U Owe, the collective narrative for the Rovers' home crowd is 'The Great Entitled". They all live on Fantasy Island where cash is pumped in by outside folk and honours are never earned. They haven't figured out that you eventually run out of other people's money😄 🐤

As Rodriguez and Austin are still at Burnley, but just can't get in the team I expect Ings to come to the same decision as those two.

l don, care what Ings t says about not being sidetracked,. every professional contracted player in this country are exactly the same when it come to ambition and greed they go together, If a lucrative offer appears on the table he will be off like a shot,,there is no such thing as loyalty in football its all about who will pay the most and its been like that for decades its just the gullible season ticket holders who are blinded by their own passion that they don,t ever question it,,do you not realise that players like Giggs who stayed at old trafford all his career for the simple reason he was paid very well and had no reason to go but if a big club came in for him like all the modern day players he would have been off like a shot.wake up!!!!.

Exactly why Rhodes went to Blackburn.
Very true.

And why he will leave at some stage when a better offer comes along, as will Ings, etc; etc.

Very few players are one club guys now, they might like the fans, the adulation, the club, but at the end of the day money talks because they have the opportunity to make some decent cash in what for the vast majority of players is an all to short career.

I do love being described as "bitter", I'm not, just realistic and practical,

I agree with you Nick but hopefully Ings will stay for at least next season for the reason I have posted before, regular football. Your other point about footballers working lives being short is true but, even before the ones at the top started "earning" (and I use the term loosely) ridiculous amounts of stupid money I always asked the question, "Why should they be able to retire at 35?" Most sportsmen and women don't have that privilege, they have to do the unthinkable and get a job.
Actually, I'm going to stop now because anyone (if anybody) who reads my posts knows what I think about the money in football so, rant over.

you deluded oafs,, Rhodes is staying put, because he knows that the mighty Rovers ( a premiership club with premiership facilities ) are on their way back, and hopefully we might be playing you sooner than you think, as long as you can avoid the drop back down COYB.

Hi Noddy,
Let me put you straight. Rovers are a championship club, simple. You will remain so until you get promoted or relegated. There is no such thing as a premier league side playing in the championship, just like there is no such thing as a league one side playing in the championship. When United were relegated in the seventies (if you can remember that, or are you one of the ones who think football was invented with the premier league?) they were a second division club until they were promoted again. You are wherever you are, leagues don't lie. Wolves are a huge club and they have just finished being a league one club. Are you getting the idea. Too many Rovers fans are surprisingly arrogant about their place in the scheme of things, I put it down to the fact that some of you only remember the good times brought about by Walkers money (20 years or so - with a spell in the championship thrown in before your recent debacle). I don't recall us being so arrogant when we spent 24 years unbroken in the top flight whilst you lot were floundering around in the second and third divisions. We were also champions of England during that period as well, with a cup final thrown in.
Accept your level and have done with it.
