Southampton: Fans react to emerging reports of new contract for Danny Ings - Southampton News

A number of Southampton fans have been reacting to the latest reports that star man Danny Ings could be set to sign a new deal to commit his long-term future to the club.

Ings has been a revelation at St Mary’s since signing from Liverpool on an initial loan deal back in 2018. The striker registered seven goals and three assists in 24 Premier League matches whilst on loan in 2018/19 (via Sofascore). That was enough to convince the Saints to make the move permanent for around £20 million.

Last season saw Ings fully repay the faith shown in him by registering an impressive tally of 22 goals in 38 Premier League matches, an impressive ratio of 0.6 goals per match (Sofascore). Not since the days of Matt Le Tissier and later James Beattie have the Saints had a player in the top-flight delivering goals at such an impressive rate.

What year were Southampton founded?

The 28-year-old has carried that form into this season, managing to register four league goals already. That sort of prolonged form could potentially make him a target for another one of the Premier League’s top six clubs, and unsurprisingly reports have now emerged that he is set to sign a new deal with the club, per The Athletic’s David Ornstein.

However, it is thought that the new deal could see him have a release clause added into his contract, which would put Southampton in a very weak negotiating position if anyone were to stump up that fee, whatever it my be. Saints fans have been reacting on Twitter, and while they are of course thrilled to extend their star man’s deal, plenty of fans highlighted the release clause as a ‘concern’.
