Southampton striker Danny Ings is close to signing a new long-term deal at the club, reports claim.

The Saints man came within a whisker of clinching the Golden Boot last season with an impressive 22 league goals, and has already bagged 4 times in 5 matches this campaign, with his latest strike coming in Saturday’s 3-3 Premier League draw with Chelsea.

Ings’ arrival from Liverpool in 2018 could hardly have gone much better, with the 28-year-old quickly becoming the talisman of the club he supported as a boy.

Despite having 2 years remaining on his £65,000 a week deal, Southampton are keen to tie down the striker to a new long-term contract, with a report in The Athletic suggesting that the player has ‘zero interest’ in leaving St Mary’s and Saints are ‘increasingly confident’ of getting the deal done.

Negotiations remain ongoing between the club and the player, but it seems inevitable that Ings will put pen-to-paper on fresh terms at Southampton.
