Burnley striker Danny Ings unsure of future amid Liverpool and Tottenham talk

Burnley

In-demand striker Danny Ings insists his future remains up in the air as the race to land the Burnley striker intensifies.

Burnley striker Danny Ings insists his future remains "up in the air" as the race to secure his signature intensifies.

The England U21 international's contract expires at Turf Moor next month, and it looks increasingly likely that he will make a move to a Premier League club after Burnley failed to avoid the drop out of the top-flight.

Liverpool, per the Daily Mail, appear to be in pole position to sign the 22-year-old, but Tottenham Hotspur, per the Independent, are believed to be readying a bid. In January, Real Sociedad manager David Moyes, as covered by the BBC, was said to be interested, but nothing came of those reports and Ings remained at Burnley.

Ings has been with the Clarets since he was 19-years-old and will command a compensatory fee despite seeing his contract run down. The club have no say in the player's future, though, and with an array of Premier League clubs seemingly interested, the U21 international will have a big decision to make.

Burnley's top scorer, with 11 in his debut season in the top-flight, is looking forward to having a short break for now and impressing at this summer’s European U21 Championship before making any decision on his future at club level.

"My holiday's the first thing on my mind. I'm looking forward to a bit of downtime and after that it's going to be hard work again," Ings told the Lancashire Telegraph.

"It's going to be a short summer for me this year but I love football so I'd play it every day if I could.

"After that I'll sit down with my agent and discuss my future then.

"At the moment it's all up in the air. I don't know what's going to happen."

Ings moved to Turf Moor from Bournemouth 2011 and believes he owes the club plenty.

"It's a sad time for me. Burnley Football Club helped me mature from a boy to a man and I can't thank them everyone from the club enough, from the board to the staff at the training ground and the staff at the club," he added.

"It's been a fantastic journey, so of course it would be upsetting for it to come to an end.

"But that's football and it happens with every player. I thank everyone from the fans to the staff, everyone's been fantastic."
