Danny Ings has officially made a transfer move from Liverpool to Southampton permanent, with the forward penning a long-term contract at the Saints yesterday evening. Ings spent last season on loan with Southampton and impressed sufficiently to be given a permanent contract at St Mary's.

The striker scored 8 goals in 25 games last season and Southampton have paid a fee of around £17 million to sign the striker on a permanent basis. The Saints have beaten the likes of West Ham and Wolves in capturing the striker from Liverpool

"It feels good," Ings told Southampton's official website.

"Now I've signed permanently, I feel great. I've looked after myself and I'm just raring to go for the new season.

"Personally, it's a big season for me. I feel like it's my most exciting really.

"The last few years have been very up and down for me, but I'm really looking forward to it and hopefully great things can come from it."

Ings is expected to lead the line at Southampton next season and the transfer of the forward is not expected to end the club's spending on the transfer market this summer.
