Moyes reckons Ings has played his part at the club

In fact saying  his form has been indifferent as been indifferent since arriving at West Ham does an injustice to the word. In fairness to David Moyes with few options available for strikers in the winter window it seemed a reasonable pick at the time.

But attempting to claim he has played his part  and that he may have has a future at the club seems a tad excessive given his scoring record in the time he has been here. It was of course good to see him have a decent game against Sheffield United but it has been a long time coming and it seems far too early to be discussing his future. We would all love it to work out. However the BUT is a big word right now!

Two goals in 39 games during that time is not exactly Ings blowing pretty bubbles in the air, more a case of his fortune hiding throughout his time with us thus far. However, the manager appears to believe there is a future before the 31 year old at the London Stadium which may take many by surprise!

The manager claims in quotes per the Daily Mail: ‘We brought Danny in when we were really short of centre-forward options and we wanted someone that could score in the Premier League.

‘We wanted someone to hit the ground running. I can remember him scoring two against Nottingham Forest when we probably needed the goals to make sure we weren’t in a relegation battle last year.

‘Danny has played his part and he’s probably wanted more minutes than we’ve been able to offer him, but there are circumstances that have affected the situation.

‘If you look at the form of the forward players, there’s Michail Antonio and we’re using Jarrod Bowen now, so it’s been pretty hard for him. But overall Danny Ings is a really good player and really good professional to work with as well.

‘Can it work out for him? I think that’s more a question for Danny Ings rather than me.”
