Burnley striker Danny Ings has rejected a move to Spanish side Real Socieded, in favour of a transfer to Liverpool in the summer, according to the Daily Mirror.
The 22-year-old striker met with Socieded manager David Moyes last month, however had no plans to relocate to Spain, despite flying out to meet the former Manchester United manager.
Ings is out of contract at Burnley in the summer, with his heart set on a move to Anfield on a free-transfer, though Liverpool will have to pay some compenation to the Clarets due to his age.
The Mirror claim that Ings has already agreed to sign for Brendan Rodgers’ side, despite interest elsewhere from Manchester City and Tottenham Hotspur.
Liverpool tried to sign the in-form forward in the January transfer window, however any deal was rebuffed by Burnley manager Sean Dyche.
Ings remains the leading scorer at Turf Moor this season, having netted nine times to date, following on from his 20 goals he scored last season to help Burnley gain promotion from the Championship.
