Ralph Hasenhuttl provides an update on the contract situation of Tottenham target Danny Ings
The 28-year-old Ings has grown into a prolific goalscorer since moving to Southampton from Liverpool in 2018. Having made the switch initially on loan, the Englishman joined the Saints permanently a year later.
Ings enjoyed a prolific 2019/20 campaign and has been in equally good form in the ongoing campaign. On the back of his strong with Southampton, the striker has forced his way back into the England national team as well.
However, Ings’ current contract with the club runs out in the summer of 2022. With less than eighteen months left on his current deal, clubs, including Tottenham, have taken an interest in his situation, with an eye on a move in the summer. This comes after the club had an enquiry rejected for the Englishman last summer.
Southampton manager Hasenhuttl, though, is still hopeful that the club will be able to reach an agreement with Ings over a new contract.
“I can only say that we want him to stay here. We’ve shown as a club that we want him to be here, definitely, and he’s shown signals that he wants to stay with us. So I’m still positive that we’re fine together for the future.
“For us, it’s important to show him we don’t want him to sell him. We want him to stay with us. I don’t want to say we’re responsible for this but we helped him to be that strong. It’s always a win-win situation if we can find [a solution] together.”

With Harry Kane and Son Heung-min sharing the goalscoring burden, adding another source of goals like Ings in the summer would be a great move. However, any move for him might hinge on how his contract negotiations with Southampton go.
