Southampton chief executive Martin Semmens has claimed Danny Ings is happy at the club and will stay for the duration of his 18-month deal.
Martin Semmens said “The conversations have gone on and we have had talks with Danny, they’ve been 100 per cent professional. Danny is very happy here, he wants to stay with the club and we have enjoyed having him. Money is 100 percent not the issue. Danny has put us under no pressure to provide finances that we are not comfortable with. Those rumours are not true. Danny is focused on playing games for us and does not want to talk about his future contract, I think people forget that they are humans. He has a contract with us for 18 months and he will be with us for that time and we will sit down and talk about the future at some time before then. There are no issues. I know everybody is looking for a story but he has a contract with us and we hope he will stay beyond that.”
A report emerged this week claiming the forward is holding off on signing a new deal with the Saints because he wants to return to a Champions League club this summer. The former Liverpool striker traded Anfield for St Mary’s in 2018 and has flourished on the south coast. Along with the Reds, reports have since claimed Tottenham, Manchester City and Manchester United are all eyeing a summer move for the forward.
