In an exclusive interview with Tom Ward of Football FanCast, former footballer and expert Carlton Palmer has made a claim about Danny Ings’ future in Southampton.
This includes the 22 goals scored in the top flight for Ralph Hasenhuttl’s side last season, which saw him finish as the Premier League’s second joint top scorer.
Do you think Ings will sign a new contract?
Therefore, it is easy to understand why Hasenhuttl and Southampton are desperate tie the former Liverpool player to a new deal in the near future, with his current contract it is scheduled to expire at the end of next season.
Here’s what Palmer had to say exclusively to FFC about the Ings contract status:
“I would be very surprised if Danny Ings doesn’t sign a new contract at Southampton, I’m sure he will. I think Southampton is paying decent money and he could see the fact too, I know there’s not a lot of loyalty in the game but they took him away when he had a horrible injury and found his form, found his scoring touch and got himself back in the England team, back in Southampton.
“So if I were Danny Ings, as long as the deal is in his interest, I think I would sign for Southampton and continue to play as I am, and I hope to get to the European Championship.”
So it seems that Palmer feels that Ings is likely to extend his stay with Southampton as he clearly fits in well with the Saints and they were the ones who gave him a chance when he was fighting with injuries both in Liverpool.
With England striker going back to training this week, imagine it won’t be long until he is back on the roster with Southampton, while a contract extension is also expected to be not far off.
And, in other news … Southampton made a big mistake by signing Mohamed Salisu ahead of the 6-foot-3 beast
