Newcastle reportedly set to miss out on top striking target

Newcastle United are reportedly set to miss out on the signing of Liverpool striker Danny Ings as the Reds want him to stay put.

Ings has been hampered by injuries since joining the Reds from Burnley in 2015.

Though he is now fit, it is unlikely that he will get regular game time during the second half of the season considering that the likes of Roberto Firmino, Dominic Solanke and Daniel Sturridge are ahead of him in the clubs pecking order.

Newcastle had been linked with signing the former Burnley man on loan till the end of the season. However this now looks unlikely to happen as Liverpool appear to be keen to keep him at Anfield.

Ings is also said to want to remain at Anfield and work as hard as he can in order to try and force his way back into the first team fold.
