£15M Danny Ings completes Hammers move

By Gonzo 

West Ham have this morning signed Aston Villa striker Danny Ings according to Sky Sports.

The Irons had been in talks for Ings, whose contract at Villa expires in 2024, with a £1om fee initially being rumoured.

The transfer comes at a time when stories are starting to emerge that £35m summer signing Gianluca Scamacca may have sustained an injury in training. 

Thirty -year-old Ings, who won three England caps, has scored seven times in 21 appearances so far this season, most of which have been as a substitute. 

His six Premier League goals are one more than The Hammers main forwards, Michail Antonio and Gianluca Scamacca have managed collectively this term.

Clearly the transfer has been completed in time for Ings to feature in the relegation clash against Everton this weekend.

The game is rumoured to be  to be manager David Moyes’ last chance to keep his job, should he lose it’s believed Rafa Benitez is lined up to replace him.

  1. Welcome Danny. Happy to see a real Striker who wants to play for us walking through the door.

  2. Well he does have pedigree. But he is almost a pensioner, young and hungry?
    We do have issues with creating chances.
    We do need a right back and Emerson on the left.

  3. Let’s hope and pray Moyes doesn’t decide to play him in central midfield

  4. At which point do you think Moyes will integrate him into the team, 80th or 89th minute? He will need time to warm into the match of course when we’re 2-0 down & want a miracle!
