Liverpool new boy Danny Ings is busy preparing for the England's under-21 campaig.

Danny Ings is preparing for a huge month as he aims to lead the line for England's under-21 side at the European Championships.

It was announced by Liverpool's official website he had clinched his switch from Burnley earlier this week, subject to medical.

Ings was pictured in training for the England under-21 side on Tuesday, alongside a player he will be battling next season, Everton defender John Stones.

Both players are hoping to use the tournament as a platform for senior international honours, with coach Gareth Southgate speaking highly of the new Liverpool signing.

He told The Mirror: "He is a player who wants to learn, improve and has a great mindset. The challenge of Liverpool will be helped by us. It is a great opportunity.

"He moves up to be eligible for the seniors after this summer. At Liverpool he will face different styles of play and European football. They will develop his game."

Ings is competing for a spot up front in Southgate's side with prolific forwards Harry Kane of Tottenham and Saido Berahino of West Brom, each of who have enjoyed excellent seasons in the Premier League.

The under-21 tournament kicks off on June 15, being hosted in the Czech Republic. England are drawn in a tough group with Portugal, Italy and Sweden.
