Danny Ings explains how he's settled into life at Liverpool

Ings made the switch from Burnley this summer.

Liverpool forward Danny Ings says he has settled into life pretty quickly at the club after making the move from Burnley this summer. 

In an interview with the club's official website while on their pre-season tour of the Far East and Australia, the 22-year-old said: "It's important when you sign for a new team that you've got everyone around you to help you settle in.

"I couldn't feel more settled at the moment - the staff and players are so friendly. I can already see it's a family club and it's great to be a part of it."

The fee for Ings has yet to be agreed and the compensation looks increasingly likely to be set by a tribunal, but that hasn't stopped Ings getting to work with his new teammates, as he linked up with the squad earlier than expected for pre-season training. He was given extra time off if he wanted it after participating in England's European under-21 Championship campaign. 

Ings has arrived a time when there's been something of a crisis among Liverpool's forwards after a season where none of them managed to get into double figures.

The former Bournemouth striker managed to do just that with the lowest scoring side in the Premier League last season, but he appears to be a squad player to do a specific job in some games more than anything - though we will learn more about his role as their pre-season tour progresses. 

It's a good sign that he feels pretty settled at the club for Liverpool, as they need to hit the ground running during the coming season in order to try and put last season's disappointment behind them fairly swiftly. Brendan Rodgers hopes he won't be the only new signing adapting to life quickly at their new club.
