Liverpool fans are furious at their club’s dealings after reports emerged that they will receive just £2m from Danny Ings’ move from Southampton to Aston Villa.
Ings joined the Saints from Anfield back in 2019, and went on to score 46 goals in 100 appearances for the Premier League side in his two seasons with the club.
That includes 13 goals in 33 appearances in the 2020/21 season, in what was a frustrating campaign as they finished 15th in the Premier League.
The Athletic’s James Pearce has revealed that Liverpool negotiated a 20 per cent sell-on clause when he opted to sign for Southampton, but it’s only 20 per cent of any fee upwards of £20m, which means that the Reds will only get a boost of £2m from the £30m that Aston Villa have paid for his services this summer.
Plenty of Liverpool’s supporters took to social media to voice their frustrations after hearing of this update from The Athletic’s Liverpool correspondent.
Take a look at the best of the reaction from Twitter, as Pearce’s recent update on Liverpool’s sell-on strategy attracted plenty of criticism.
Reds fans react
“It’s just a tad embarrassing James. Just a tad.”
“Edwards on fraud watch.”
“From Edwards masterclass to Edwards is finished, only lfc fans can do that.”
“We are actually a banter club without Klopp.”
“We were sold lies again.”
“That’s just nonsense. Seeing all these players moving about and yet again FSG think our squad is strong enough. We are caught standing still again.”
“At this point the club should share their bank details so the fans can also contribute to our transfer budget.”
“That is then a useless clause.”
