Liverpool fans will be rolling there eyes at this one.
We revealed on Saturday that Danny Ings is in Northern Spain this weekend, discussing a potential transfer to Real Sociedad, where he would join former Manchester United and Everton boss David Moyes.

However, there has been a twist in this ongoing transfer saga. According to reports in the Daily Star, Burnley manager Sean Dyche has urged his player to remain in England, even if it means leaving Turf Moor.
Dyche said: “For his development he wants to be in the top end of the Premier League. It is the most powerful league in the world. His aspirations need to be top end of the Premier League.
“The middle of La Liga is no use. That is not doing us down, it is the reality of the market we are in. If I had seen him play at Manchester United on Wednesday, I would be knocking on the door to try and get him.”
The news is likely to receive a mixed reception from Liverpool fans, who have been distinctly unimpressed with previous talk of us signing the 22-year-old hit-man, who has scored nine times this season.
Brendan Rodgers’ side were among those linked with the England hopeful during the January transfer window, while Chelsea and Manchester United were also thought to have expressed an interest.
However, with Daniel Sturridge now fit and firing, and with Mario Balotelli finally growing into his role as a Liverpool player – it’s hard to see where Ings would fit into the Reds squad next season.
