Burnley's Danny Ings to shun Newcastle, Sunderland and Ajax interest

Burnley FC - Turf Moor

Danny Ings is being linked with Newcastle United, Sunderland and Ajax but says he will snub January interest and remain committed to Burnley.

Danny Ings is due to be out of contract at Burnley at the end of the season, and no fresh terms have been agreed as yet.

A cut-price transfer in January has been mooted, with it expected that a fee of around £3 million would be enough to snare the England U21 international.

The likes of Newcastle United, Sunderland and Eredivisie giants Ajax would have no problem finding the funds required to do a deal.

It is, however, looking like they will be snubbed if formal bids are tabled.

Ings claims he remains fully committed to Burnley and, despite the uncertainty surrounding his long-term future, is prepared to see out the 2014/15 campaign with the Clarets.

He said: "I'm contracted until the end of the season and that's the way it's going to be. Now I can fight for the team as much as I can and do my best for them.

"I won't be looking at that (possible offers) and I just take that sign as confidence and take it into my game and do as well as I can for Burnley.

"Especially for a young lad, it's quite easy to lose concentration for some people with all the speculation. But I'm not that sort of character. I've got a job here to do at Burnley and am contracted until the end of the season - and that's the way it's going to be."

Ings has netted four Premier League goals this season for struggling Burnley.

Sean Dyche will be delighted to hear that he plans to stick around and aid their top-flight survival push.

He will, however, be concerned that the Clarets are running the risk of losing the 22-year-old for nothing next summer and will have a tough decision to make if tempting offers are received.
