Danny Ings: Goalscoring exploits have sparked transfer rumours

Danny Ings: Goalscoring exploits have sparked transfer rumours

Ings has been a revelation for the Clarets this season, helping to fill the void created by Charlie Austin's summer switch to Queens Park Rangers.

He has already found the target on 16 occasions for Burnley, while adding a further two goals to his tally for the England U21s.

His exploits are reported to be drawing admiring glances from the Premier League, with goalscorers always in high demand.

Dyche concedes that clubs may be looking at Ings and mulling over an approach, but he insists none have been received as yet and is not overly concerned heading into the January transfer window.

He said in the Burnley Express: "It's the reality of people doing well. If you look across the divisions, forwards get the main headlines, but there are players in different positions at many different clubs - it's just a natural progression of that, for a club like Burnley or a club like Leicester.

"They have players who are going well. I think the boy (Jeffrey) Schlupp was at Manchester United for a period.

"They've got people looking at their players as well. It's just a natural fact. I think it enhances it when you're doing well.

"There isn't any factual interest that I know. No-one has rung me, so that's factual, but there are a million stories."

e have the personnel. The trick is keeping them fit. Carrick and Blind have missed large chunks of the season, while the defence has been one muddled mess of intermittent stooges, all coming and going at various intervals thus far. We may be just short of title winning quality, but we're half way through. An injury crisis to either of the top two could change things. Optimistic, yes, but not unrealistic.

arish is the man to blame for this shambles. Pulis must be chuckling into his left over turkey sandwich. I pray this doesn't mean the Neil Warnock media machine will kick in now and he'll be back on the telly box.

e almost found a new way to lose, just when I thought it was getting boring Giroud does that. Although Arsenal are deservedly called 'soft' the entire midfield is out injured. Still must admit MU are managing to win despite a similar raft of absentees. Think the Gunners have good players but poorly coached.
