Daniel William John "Danny" Ings (born 23 July 1992) is an English professional footballer who plays as a forward for Premier League club Liverpool and England.

Ings started his career in the youth team of Southampton but was released as a schoolboy. He subsequently joined Bournemouth, progressing through their youth system, while also spending time at Dorchester Town on loan. In 2011 Ings joined Burnley with whom he won the 2013–14 Championship Player of the Year, and helped them achieve promotion to the Premier League. Following Burnley's relegation, and the expiry of his contract with the club, Ings moved to Liverpool in the summer of 2015, but his first season at Anfield was ended after two months due to injury.

Formerly an under-21 international, Ings made his senior debut for England in October 2015.

Club career[edit]

Bournemouth[edit]

Ings was born in Winchester, Hampshire and grew up in Netley, Hampshire.[2] As a child he attended Netley Abbey Primary School and Hamble Community Sports College. Ings dreamed of playing for local club Southampton, but was rejected for being too small.[3] He signed for Southampton from Netley Central Sports, before being released as a school boy.[4] After his release, Ings played for Itchen Tyro. He subsequently signed a two-year apprentice contract with Bournemouth in May 2008, having progressed through the club's Centre of Excellence while he was still at secondary school at Hamble Community Sports College.[5] He had also previously had experience playing for the reserve side.[5] He made his professional debut for Bournemouth on 6 October 2009, in a 2–1 away defeat to Northampton Town in the Football League Trophy, replacing Jason Tindall in the second half as a substitute.[6] His second season in the youth team was blighted by a long-term abdominal injury, which restricted his playing time.[7] He remained with the youth team until the summer of 2010, when he signed a short-term three-month contract.[8] He extended his contract in September 2010, until the end of the 2010–11 campaign.[4]

In September 2010, he was sent on an initial one-month loan to Conference South side Dorchester Town.[9] His debut for the Magpies came on 11 September 2010, scoring the equaliser in a 2–1 home defeat to Ebbsfleet United.[10] His second goal for Dorchester came on 24 September, scoring a penalty in a 4–1 win over Mangotsfield United in the FA Cup.[11] On 6 October, his loan was extended for a further month.[12] His next goal came in a 4–1 defeat to Havant & Waterlooville as the Magpies were knocked out of the FA Cup.[13] On 16 October, he scored the second in a 2–0 league win over Lewes, after coming on as a late substitute for Giuseppe Sole.[14] He got his fifth goal in a 2–1 away win over Staines Town, scoring the opener.[15] His first goal in November came in a 2–1 home defeat to Maidenhead United, which ended an unbeaten run of six games.[16] On 12 November 2010, his loan was extended for a third time for an additional month.[17] He scored the second in a 3–1 win over Weston-super-Mare in the FA Trophy to help them progress to the next round.[18] On 23 November, his spell at Dorchester was cut short as he was recalled from his loan by Bournemouth due to an injury crisis at the club.[19]

On 30 November, he signed a new contract extension which lasted until 2012.[20] He made his league debut and first start for Bournemouth on 28 December 2010, in a 2–0 away defeat to Milton Keynes Dons in League One, where he was substituted off in the first half for Steve Fletcher.[21] He started to become a first team regular and scored his first professional goal against Swindon Town on 1 February 2011, in a 3–2 win at Dean Court.[22] His form saw him rewarded with a new contract extension, lasting until 2013.[4] On 26 February 2011, he scored a header to equalise in 2–1 win away at Dagenham & Redbridge in the league.[23] On 1 April he added to his tally with a goal against Peterborough United in a 3–3 draw.[24] He went through a rich vein of goalscoring from in April, scoring four goals in three games. He scored an overhead kick to equalise in the last minute against Tranmere Rovers, however, the Cherries went on to lose the game 2–1.[25] He also scored in a 2–0 away victory over Notts County.[26] He scored his first brace in a 2–2 draw with Yeovil Town, including one penalty.[27] His final goal for Bournemouth came in the last game of the season, in the play-off semi-final defeat to Huddersfield Town, as Bournemouth were knocked out on penalties.[28]

In the summer of 2011, he was linked with reported moves away from Bournemouth with Celtic, Liverpool and Newcastle United.[4] Premier League side Fulham also had a £400,000 bid rejected by the club.[4] In July 2011, he was rewarded with his fifth contract in twelve months, improving his deal to be one of the top earners at the club.[4] He remained at the club through pre-season and started in the first game of the season in a 3–0 away defeat to Charlton Athletic. It proved to be his final appearance for the club.[29]

Burnley[edit]

Ings playing for Burnley in 2012

On 15 August 2011, Ings signed for Championship side Burnley for an undisclosed fee believed to be in the region of £1 million, on a four-year contract.[30] He rejoined former Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe who had made the same move eight months earlier.

He made his debut on 14 February 2012, in a 2–0 win over Barnsley at Turf Moor, where he came on as a late substitute for Charlie Austin.[31] His first start came a month later on 10 March 2012, in a 1–1 home draw with Crystal Palace in the league.[32] His first goal for Burnley came on 31 March, in a 5–1 win against Portsmouth at Fratton Park.[33] His second goal came in the following game, where he scored the equaliser in a 3–1 defeat to Birmingham City.[34] He scored his third goal of the season in the final game of the season, a 30-yard strike in a 1–1 home draw with Bristol City.[35]

He started the 2012–13 season as a first choice regular in pre-season following the sale of striker Jay Rodriguez to Southampton. He scored in friendly wins over Altrincham and Bury.[36][37] He suffered another serious knee injury in the final pre-season game, a 3–1 defeat to Rochdale. He tore the knee cartilage in the opposite knee to the previous season which resulted in surgery, keeping him out of action for up to six months.[38]

Following the departure of top-scorer Charlie Austin to QPR, Ings became the main striker ahead of the 2013–14 season.[39] He put together a string of impressive performances in the Clarets' pre-season campaign and scored two goals in the opening three league matches as well as a goal in the League Cup against York City.[40] For his continued good start to the season Ings was named the Championship Player of the Month for October.[41]

In March 2014, Ings won Championship Player of the Year at the Football League Awards, ahead of the two other nominees: Leeds United striker Ross McCormack and Leicester City midfielder Danny Drinkwater.[42] He ended the 2013–14 Championship season with 22 goals as Burnley finished second and gained promotion to the Premier League.[43]

On 19 August 2014, Ings made his Premier League debut in a 3–1 loss to Chelsea at Turf Moor.[44] His first Premier League goal came in a 1–3 defeat to Everton on 26 October.[45]

On 22 November 2014, Ings scored both of Burnley's goals in a 2–1 win at Stoke City for their first away win of the Premier League season, his two goals coming in the space of two minutes.[46] He made his 100th league appearance for Burnley in a 1–0 win against Southampton on 13 December.[47]

During January and February 2015, Ings scored five goals in six Premier League matches, helping the team to achieve draws with Newcastle United and West Bromwich Albion, and defeat Queens Park Rangers.[48] In May, he scored the winning goal in 1–0 victories over Hull City and Aston Villa respectively to end the season with 11 goals from 35 league appearances.[49]

Liverpool[edit]

On 8 June 2015, Liverpool announced that they had agreed on personal terms with Ings, subject to a medical,[50] as well as a developmental fee due to Burnley for players under 24, to be negotiated between two clubs or determined by a tribunal.[51] Under tribunal the fee would be decided by the Professional Football Compensation Committee.[52] On 28 April 2016, the saga was finally settled. Liverpool would pay Burnley a record fee for a tribunal hearing: £6.5 million up front, with an extra £1.5 million in player performance-related bonuses. Burnley will also receive 20% of any future fee should Liverpool sell the striker.[53]

Ings made his competitive debut on 29 August 2015 in a 3–0 defeat against West Ham at Anfield.[54] He made his European debut for the club on 17 September in the UEFA Europa League group stage match against Bordeaux, as a substitute for Divock Origi in a 1–1 draw.[55] Three days later, he replaced Christian Benteke at half time and within three minutes scored his first Liverpool goal in a 1–1 draw against Norwich City.[56] On 4 October 2015, he opened a draw of the same score against Everton in the Merseyside Derby.[57]

On 15 October 2015, in his first training session under new manager Jürgen Klopp, Ings suffered an anterior cruciate ligament injury in his left knee and was ruled out for the remainder of the season.[58] However, Ings returned sooner than anticipated, making a substitute appearance in the final game of the season, a 1–1 draw away to West Bromwich Albion.[59] Ings began the 2016-17 season playing in the reserves to help regain fitness. On 25 October 2016, Ings sustained damage to his right knee in a League Cup match against Tottenham Hotspur that would require another spell on the sidelines of up to 9 months.[60] He successfully underwent surgery to repair the damage to his knee and begun rehabilitation at Melwood on 9 November.[61]

International career[edit]

On 3 October 2013, Ings received his first international call-up to the England national under-21 team by manager Gareth Southgate.[62] He made his debut a week later as a substitute in a 4–0 win away to San Marino.[63] He won his second cap in the reverse fixture on 19 November, and scored twice as England won 9–0 against San Marino at the New Meadow.[64] He earned 13 caps and scored four goals for the under-21s from 2013 to 2015.[65]

On 1 October 2015, Ings received his first international call-up to the full England national team from manager Roy Hodgson, for the final UEFA Euro 2016 qualifying matches against Estonia and Lithuania.[66] He made his debut in the latter game on the 12th, replacing Harry Kane after 59 minutes of an eventual 3–0 win in Vilnius.[67]

Personal life[edit]

Off the field, Ings has gained a reputation for charitable acts.[68] In November 2014, he launched and funded the Danny Ings Disability Sport Project to provide football coaching to children with disabilities and learning difficulties after being inspired to do so by a young disabled Burnley fan.[69] His father Shayne Ings initially played as a winger and then as a full-back for Hampshire-based Netley Central Sports. He still works as a self-employed bricklayer and the family still live in the same house in Netley.[3]
