Report: Tottenham have bid accepted for Burnley's Danny Ings

Tottenham Hotspur are reportedly hoping to beat Liverpool and Real Sociedad to the signing of Burnley striker Danny Ings.

Tottenham Hotspur have had a £12 million bid for Danny Ings accepted by Burnley, according to the Daily Mail.

Spurs have apparently attempted to jump ahead of a clutch of clubs who are chasing Ings by making a strong offer for the striker and Burnley have reportedly jumped at the chance to recoup a sizeable sum of money for a player whose contract expires in the near future.

Ings' current deal at Turf Moor runs out at the end of next month, but Burnley would be due a compensation sum if he does move on.

The Mail claims that Tottenham want to skip the hassle of letting the transfer go to a tribunal and they have lodged a bid which has been deemed satisfactory by Burnley.

It is now up to Ings to decide whether a move to White Hart Lane would be right as the next step in his career.

The England youth international seemingly has an option to go to Liverpool, who are also though to be interested, or he could even end up at Real Socieded.

At the moment, however, Spurs look the favourites to land the in-demand front-man and Mauricio Pochettino will be hoping that a deal goes through in the near future.
