Ings showed early signs of promise under previous manager Brendan Rodgers following his move to Liverpool, who paid an initial £6.5 million to the Clarets after a tribunal.

However, the Englishman was unlucky with two serious knee injuries from which he is still recovering, having made only 25 appearances in all competitions in three years.

Liverpool forward Danny Ings has joined fellow Premier League club Southampton on a season-long loan with the deal including an obligation to buy.

Klopp revealed that they could not stand on his way after Ings suggested moving away from Anfield in order to seek the first-team action.

"The 45 minutes he played was not Danny Ings at his best because nobody knows exactly what that will be, but he showed he is really in good shape and a good way, so that's nice for him and for Southampton".

'We have admired him for some time now, not only for his ability, but also his character and personality, which we feel will be an ideal fit in our dressing room.

But joining Mark Hughes' Saints could give him the opportunity to revive his career, and a move back to familiar settings should be a welcome one. His move to Liverpool held so much potential but unfortunately for both player and club, his injury problems prevented him from getting a run of games at full tilt. "It's his home, his family is there, it's his boyhood club." the former Borussia Dortmund coach added. The biggest emotion is how much we will miss him.

"We all know his story and the bad luck he has had since then".

However Burnley did significantly better than Southampton last campaign, finishing in seventh to secure European football whilst the Saints only narrowly secured Premier League safety all together.
