West Ham United is prepared to listen to new offers for striker Danny Ings this summer, according to a new report

The 31-year-old has seen limited playing time since joining from Aston Villa in 2023, managing only one goal in 27 appearances. Only seven of those appearances were starts. Overall, he has scored just four goals in 49 appearances for West Ham.

West Ham are reportedly keen to free up space on their wage bill. Ings’ salary of £125,000 per week translates to a hefty £6.5 million for the 2024-25 season according to

West Ham’s desire to offload Ings reflects a planned striker overhaul this summer. Michail Antonio, whose contract expires in June, is also expected to leave the club. These departures suggest West Ham will be actively seeking replacements.

Sources have indicated that West Ham is planning a significant summer transfer window, potentially involving four to six signings across various positions.

Yet another expensive mistake for the Irons!

    “ Yet another expensive mistake for the Irons!”

    Simon, virtually every article you pen is either critical of, or infers criticism of, the club in general or David Moyes. Your incessant little digs and negative swipes at the club become very wearing. Are you sure you are a West Ham supporter?

    • Alex says:

      Steve, do you actually think that Ings has been a success???
      £125k a week for a striker that doesn’t play the style that the manager wants and so rarely plays a game is a very expensive mistake by us.

  • IronMan says:

    Chicorito, Haller, Scamacca, Cornet. No need to be coy about it. He couldn’t get a tune out if any of them. Are they all bad players? Of course not. The fault lies with Moyes.

  • Bennyboy baker says:

    Moyes new when he brought Danny ings to the club that he didn’t play the way moyes likes to play he we are told that he tried to change his tactics which I believe is why Danny ings came to the club wings is a quality striker but not able to play the lone striker which is a shame but if Danny ings wants to revive his career then he needs to move on best for him and would be best for the club as well it’s like everything in life some you win some you lose

    Moyes is dismal at everything . No due diligence with player acquisition ( Haller, Scamacca , Vlasic , Ings , Phillips , Aguerd and on and on ) , Antiquated small squad mentality . Small team tactics ( Keep it tight and nick a goal ) . Moyes remaining for the last few games just damages Westham further . Some good players may leave before the new manager has a chance to talk to them and Westham have a modest budget to secure a lot of players .

  • Phil Baker says:

    PS , No route for Academy players . Westham need to polish their academy players with some first team experience in order to gain maximum profit . Even if academy players aren’t good enough for Westham they can be brought up to 5-10 million valuation with the right strategy , which would greatly help the FFP issues .

    Ings did not get much time to play under Moyes. At his age, would he get much more with a new manager? Probably not. And he is too expensive to just sit on the bench.
