Ings, who has 68 Premier League goals to his name in 188 top-flight appearances, has scored at an impressive better-than-one-in-three rate for Burnley, Liverpool, Southampton and Aston Villa, with a best in a season of 22 for the Saints in 2019/20.
The hard-working Winchester-born striker scored consistently everywhere he played, netting nearly 125 career goals and hitting the net for England in a friendly win over Wales at Wembley in October 2020.
An efficient and intelligent player with impressive technical ability, Ings’ work-rate and determination also allow him to excel in regaining possession in the final third and running with the ball at his feet.
Raised in the village of Netley on Southampton Water, Ings began his career with nearby AFC Bournemouth. A prolific spell at Burnley led to promotion to the Premier League, a transfer to Liverpool and a senior debut for England in a UEFA European Championship qualifier against Lithuania in 2015.
Ings joined Southampton in 2018 and produced three prolific seasons on the south coast, scoring 46 goals in exactly 100 appearances for Saints across three campaigns, including 41 in the Premier League. He added two more England caps against Iceland and Wales in 2020.
He joins the Hammers as Aston Villa’s top scorer this season with seven goals.
Everyone at West Ham United welcomes Danny and his family to east London and wishes him the best for his career at Claret and Blue.
