Winchester, England
Squad Number: 18

The much-travelled former England international cost West Ham £12million plus potential adds-ons equating to £3million and became David Moyes' second signing of the January 2023 winter transfer window, following the arrival of Brazilian defender Luizao.

Ings has previously represented, amongst others, Premier League clubs Burnley, Liverpool, Southampton and Aston Villa, from whom he joined West Ham.

Born in Winchester, he dreamed of playing for local club Southampton but was rejected for being too small and released by the south coast club when still a school boy. After his release, Ings played for Itchen Tyro FC.

Undeterred, the young Ings refused to accept Southampton's rejection and eventually signed a two-year apprentice contract with AFC Bournemouth in May 2008 having progressed through the club's Centre of Excellence.

Following a spell on loan with Conference South club Dorchester Town, where he netted his first senior goal, Ings made his league debut for League One Bournemouth on 28 December 2010 in a 2-0 away defeat to Milton Keynes Dons.

In August 2011, and having impressed with the Cherries, Ings signed for Championship club Burnley for an undisclosed fee believed to be in the region of £1 million, on a four-year contract.

In June 2015, Liverpool announced that they had agreed personal terms with Ings whose fee was set by tribunal; the Reds ordered to pay £6.5 million up front with an extra £1.5 million in player performance-related bonuses.

Burnley later gained an additional £3.6m due to a clause which saw them get 20% of the £18m Liverpool received from selling Ings to Southampton in July 2019.

Ings signed a three-year contract with Premier League club Aston Villa on 4 August 2021 for an undisclosed fee, reported to be £25 million; a contract only half fulfilled as he opted to accept West Ham's offer.

(Replaced Antonio 71) Not a lot to get excited about, but nice touches and good work in deeper areas are a reminder of his ability as a footballer, not just a goalscorer.
