Hammers likely signing up there with Kane and Salah

By Simon Leyland

Well, well, well…Who would have thought it…finally a new striker.

We have had a bid of £12m accepted by Villa in a deal that could rise up to £15m in potential add-ons, with Ings set to have a medical this afternoon .

Fingers crossed,

This could be an inspired signing.

I was surprised to discover that only Harry Kane (41), Mo Salah (41) and Jamie Vardy (38) have scored more goals than Ings (34) over the last two Premier League campaigns.

He seems to have fallen out with Villa boss Unai Emery by only starting a handful of games this season, nevertheless he still found the back of the net on six occasions.

Cue Michael Caine and his “Not many people know that voice” If Ings does join the mighty Irons he will be the first player to have represented all three claret and blue teams to have featured in the Premier league.

This could be just what we need to kick start a potentially doomed season

  1. I’m pretty happy with this signing a proven premier league goal scorer, more goals this season than our other 2 so-called strikers and will not need time to settle in.

  2. Now that is a good signing in our current plight. Get us to the end of the season Danny!!!

  3. We haven’t signed him yet.
    Nothing on the West Ham OS.

  4. Just this second been on there Hugh…..nothing.
