Aston Villa open to offers for Danny Ings

Aston Villa will entertain offers for striker Danny Ings if they bring in at least one new forward this summer, 90min understands.

Ings only joined Villa in a shock £25m move from Southampton last summer, but has scored just seven goals in 31 appearances across all competitions since moving to the West Midlands.

90min understands Steven Gerrard intends to bring in at least one new forward this window, which would push Ings further down the Villa Park pecking order with Ollie Watkins often preferred up front.

If Gerrard gets his wishes then Villa will listen to offers for Ings, who won’t be short of suitors. Former clubs Southampton and Bournemouth have asked to be kept informed of his situation, while fellow south coast side Brighton are also keeping tabs on the 29-year-old.
