'INGS WILL HAVE POINT TO PROVE'
Southampton boss Mark Hughes says new signings Danny Ings will "have a point to prove" on the south coast after his injury-ravaged time at Liverpool.
“There was significant competition for Danny, with a lot of clubs keen to complete a deal for him, so we’re clearly delighted that he chose to join us," Hughes told the club's website.
“We have admired him for some time now, not only for his ability, but also his character and personality, which we feel will be an ideal fit in our dressing room.
“He’s obviously a local boy, who gives us another excellent option up front. He didn’t get to play as much as he would have liked at Liverpool, but he has been injury-free for some time now and has a real point to prove.
“It’s a great boost for us on the eve of the season to bring another quality player into the squad, and we’re excited about what he can bring to the group.”
