Pardew interested in bringing Ings

Alan Pardew wants to widen his squad during the upcoming winter transfer window and he insisted that Danny Ings can be a possibility for West Bromwich Albion as he doesn’t get a playing time at Liverpool.

The new coach of West Bromwich Albion is planning to meet with the other staff members and discuss possible arrivals – and Danny Ings might be one of them. The former Burnley striker came back from injury a few weeks ago but he hasn’t been given a single chance in the Premier League squad after his return so he is set to leave the club at least on loan.

The experienced coach about his scheduled meeting with Hammond, the technical director of the club, as he said, according to Sky Sports: “I have seen Nicky Hammond to pencil in a meeting to talk about that this week, so maybe on Friday I can give you a bit more of where we’re looking and what we’re looking at.”

Meanwhile, the Liverpool manager, Jürgen Klopp, admitted that it will be hard to find a space for Danny Ings: “Danny is fit, but the others are good as well and that makes it a bit difficult for Danny. He’s always asking for minutes. It makes more sense for him to play 90 minutes for the U23s than a few minutes with us. But on Sunday I thought it was a good idea to involve him.”

In the end, Pardew insisted that he expects more from his current strikers as he urges them to show more quality: “The commitment of the players you can’t really fault, we just need that little bit of quality. Just in that final moment, the final pass, the final decision. The team is looking for a spark from an offensive player, a little bit of something special.”
