The talented young forward was supposedly the subject of a bid from the Reds, who would then loan the player back to his current club for the remainder of the season. However, this may not be possible as Burnley strongly deny the rumours.
Their club statement read:
“Ings has been heavily linked in the past 24 hours with a permanent move to Liverpool, with the suggestion that he would then be loaned back to the club for the remainder of the campaign.
“This kind of deal is prohibited by the Premier League under rule V7 which states that a player cannot be purchased and loaned back between Premier League clubs in the same transfer window.”
