BURNLEY are not planning on making a move to bring Danny Ings back to Turf Moor.

The former Clarets striker is set to leave Liverpool this summer having become frustrated at a lack of first-team opportunities at Anfield.

But the Lancashire Telegraph understands that Burnley currently have no interest in bringing the 25-year-old back to the club as they focus on a return for another former striker, in Jay Rodriguez, instead.

Ings scored 43 goals in 130 games for the Clarets before moving to Liverpool at the end of his contract, with the £6.5million fee set by a tribunal.

But two serious knee injuries have hampered his Liverpool career and he has made just 25 appearances for the Reds.

A number of Premier League clubs have been linked with Ings this summer, with reports that Liverpool will not price him out of a move as they understand his motivations for wanting to leave.

Burnley are continuing to focus on a return for Rodriguez though, with his West Brom teammate Craig Dawson also high on the wish list.

While Rodriguez has gone with the Baggies to a training camp in Portugal this week, centre back Dawson refused to travel alongside goalkeeper Ben Foster.

The Clarets have already had a £25million double bid for Rodriguez and Dawson rejected by West Brom and at the moment are thought to be no closer to reaching a deal.

West Ham have also been linked with a move for Dawson, but Burnley remain in pole position for the 28-year-old's signature if they can agree a deal with West Brom.

Meanwhile, Burnley have no interest in Cardiff City attacker Nathaniel Mendez-Laing, despite being linked with a move for the 26-year-old this week.
