Liverpool are set to pay Burnley £7m for Danny Ings who will join the Reds this summer, according to Liverpool Echo.

The England international is set to join Liverpool this summer after agreeing personal terms but his move will cost the Merseyside club £7m, despite being allowed to leave Burnley on a free transfer.

The recently relegated side installed a special clause in Ings’ contract which meant he could not speak with English clubs or agree a deal until his deal expired, however, his agreement with the Reds will now see the Championship side go to tribunal to receive their pay-out.

Burnley rejected an initial £4m offer from Liverpool for the striker and have rejected a bid from Tottenham Hotspur.

But, it is reported that they would be happy to accept a deal closer to the £10m mark as compensation.
