Jurgen Klopp has confirmed that Danny Ings is part of his first-team plans at Liverpool.
Ings has been linked with loan moves to a number of Premier League clubs, ranging from West Brom to Newcastle, Stoke and West Ham.
But Klopp says that the striker, who is yet to start a single game under him due to two long-term injuries, is expected to stay at Anfield.
The striker is in line to start against the Baggies in the FA Cup on Saturday evening.
“He’s in really good shape, but there’s nothing to say at the moment about the line-up,” he said of Ings.
“We’ve had a few players ill, I don’t know. Ings is doing really well, the fact that we don’t send him on loan show what our plans are with him.
“Since the injury it’s been ups and downs. He’s physically completely there, I can’t remember the last session he wasn’t properly involved.
“It’s a good situation for him and for us at the moment.”
