Liverpool confirm Danny Ings' loan move to Premier League club

The Australian model is sharing eye-candy, drop-dead gorgeous bikini photos with her 593,000 Instagram followers in what appears to be her own way of celebrating her boyfriend, Liverpool striker Danny Ings' move to Southampton.

Ings scored four goals in a total of 25 appearances for the Reds after having struggled for both form and fitness for the Merseyside outfit since his move from Burnley back in 2015.

"It's completely normal, things have to go on and he has friends here - and will forever have friends here - so that's cool". He came back strongly for Liverpool at the end of a year ago and showed his worth to them.

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp paid tribute to Ings after agreeing to the loan move.

Ings came through the ranks at Bournemouth and turned out for the Cherries until a 2011 switch to Burnley took him north. "But we won't just miss his character because he is a footballer who has all the tools". Southampton finished three points above the relegation zone last season and will hope to be significantly better this year. They have a great manager and I think the supporters and him will feed off each other's passion and energy. "I think he sees the potential here and the ambition of the club to do well once again".

Speaking in his pre-match press conference on Friday, Hughes admitted there is a chance Ings could be thrown straight into the action.

"You can tell that as a club it's very, very organised".

However Burnley did significantly better than Southampton last campaign, finishing in seventh to secure European football whilst the Saints only narrowly secured Premier League safety all together.

The manager was quick to reference the instant lift that Ings, rejected as a 10-year-old schoolboy by Southampton after being deemed too small, has provided and how he is confident his five summer signings can help them solve their goalscoring troubles. But clearly there's enthusiasm from him, I'm sure, that he'd want to be part of that'. "If I make that decision he'd be ready but we'll see how he does in the next two days".
