Liverpool will receive a fee believed to be worth £18m next summer when their sale of Danny Ings to Southampton is confirmed, but Burnley look set to receive £2.3m from the transfer, according to the Liverpool Echo.

The Reds signed Ings back in 2015 after his contract at Turf Moor had expired, following the club’s relegation down to the Championship.

It was a complex deal for Liverpool to recruit Ings, though, in which they were forced to pay a sum of £6.5m to Burnley as part of a compensation package.

This, according to the Echo, also included an agreed clause between the two clubs, which entitles Burnley to a 20% cut of any future sale of Ings.

The 26-year-old joins Southampton on an initial season-long loan before the move is then made permanent, with Ings set to then put pen to paper on a three-year contract at St Mary’s Stadium.

Then, as of July 1 2019, Liverpool will receive a transfer fee for Ings, with a small cut going to Burnley.
