Some Southampton fans react to 'top-six' claims about Ings

Some Southampton fans were reacting after BBC’s Adam Blackmore provided an update on the future of Danny Ings.

According to the reporter, the England international doesn’t want to join a club outside the top six. He listed West Ham, Aston Villa and Tottenham as examples of clubs Ings wouldn’t want to move to.

The 28-year-old recently rejected the club’s offer of a four-year contract. It is a deal that would have made the ace Southampton’s highest-ever paid player.

Ings has been a sensational addition to the Saints since his move in 2019. The striker has scored 34 goals across the last two seasons, 21 more than second-placed James Ward-Prowse.

When talking about Ings, Blackmore said: “He doesn’t want to play for clubs like West Ham, [Aston] Villa, or maybe even Tottenham.”

TBR View: Ings deserves a move to a top six club after Southampton form

Ings has been a pillar of consistency for Southampton since his move in 2019, making his desire for a top-six move understandable.

His strikes have been crucial for Ralph Hasenhuttl’s men, especially in the Premier League. His goals and assists in the top flight won the south coast outfit 16 of their 43 points last season.

At 28, Ings is entering the final stages of his career. It is unlikely he will receive a big move if he signs a new long-term deal with Southampton. This summer is crucial for the Englishman.

And, with a raft of top clubs chasing a new number nine, Ings could well be close to earning his long-awaited move.

Here is how some fans reacted…
