Burnley are set for a cash boost after former frontman Danny Ings made his Southampton move from Liverpool a permanent one.

The striker spent last season on loan at St Mary’s, scoring eight goals.

Now he has signed a three-year contract with the Saints and moved for a reported £18 million fee rising to £20 million.

That’s good news for the Clarets who have a sell on clause that dictates they receive 20 per cent of any profit Liverpool make from the deal.

A tribunal ruled in April 2016 that the Reds had to pay the Clarets £6.5 million, potentially rising to £8 million, after snapping up the striker when his Turf Moor contract ended in the summer of 2015.

That also included the stipulated clause pertaining to his next move which will see Burnley pick up in the region of £2.3 million.

For Ings his move to Southampton is a chance to reignite his career after struggling with injury at Anfield.

“Now I’ve signed permanently, I feel great,” he said. 

“I’ve looked after myself over the summer and I’m just raring to go for the new season.

“Personally, it’s a big season for me. I feel like it’s my most exciting really.

“The last few years have been very up and down for me, but now I’ve looked after myself over this summer and I’m really looking forward to it and hopefully great things can come from it.”
