Danny Ings completes £20m move to Southampton from Liverpool

Jurgen Klopp dismisses defensive worries after Liverpool beat Torino

Ings was born in Hampshire and started his career with the Saints, meaning any deal would be a real homecoming for the former Burnley goalscorer - and whilst it's unclear whether it would be a loan move or a permanent deal, with Liverpool seeking £20million, Southampton now face a nervous wait.

Although he was reportedly left disappointed by Jurgen Klopp's decision to move for Alisson, he's still expected to remain as part of the first team picture with the Reds for the season ahead where he's expected to be their second choice stopper.

He had been the subject of interest from a number of clubs, such as West Ham, Crystal Palace, Leicester and Newcastle, but Southampton have struck a deal with Liverpool that would see them take Ings on loan initially with an obligation to buy.

Liverpool are guaranteed £18 million, with a further £2 million based on appearances. Liverpool also have inserted a 20 percent sell-on clause.

Liverpool manager Jürgen Klopp has paid tribute to Danny Ings, after the striker left the club on Thursday evening. Southampton, though, were Ings' first choice.

Guardiola will also want to send out a statement of intent ahead of the kick off of the new Premier League season next weekend. Asked if City would swoop before Thursday's transfer deadline, Guardiola said: "I don't know".

The agreement between the clubs came late on deadline day, with Ings granted permission to miss training to be ready to travel for a medical when needed.

Ings leaves with everyone at Liverpool's best wishes, with staff and team-mates aware how hard he worked to get back to full fitness after those devastating injuries.

"Daniel is an outstanding player", Klopp said.
