Moyes plays down Ings interest

David Moyes has refused to acknowledge reports suggesting that West Ham are interested in signing Liverpool striker Danny Ings next month.

The Hammers boss was asked during this lunchtime's press conference whether he was interested in signing the out-of-favour 25-year-old striker, who joined Liverpool from Burnley in an 8million switch during the summer of 2015.

However Moyes refused to confirm or deny whether West Ham's purported interest in the player was genuine. "There seems to be a lot of names being banded about at the moment, but I've not had any involvement in it at the moment," he replied.

"I will do over the coming weeks. Maybe Tony Henry and the chairman are talking to some people, but I have no idea about that at the moment."

Ings, whose career has effectively been halted by a series of knee injuries is currently being courted by several clubs desperate to improve their available firepower, according to various reports.

Crystal Palace, Newcastle United and Stoke City are all reported to have expressed an interest in landing the once-capped striker, whose last Premier League start for his current club came more than two years ago.
