Multiple reports claim that young Burnley star Danny Ings signed a pre-contract agreement to join Real Sociedad in La Liga this summer, but Sky Sports refuted that by saying Ings prefer a summer move to Liverpool.

Burnley, it’s important to note, told Sky Sports they have no knowledge of the deal.

Ings, 22, has been heavily linked with Liverpool, but sources told the BBC that he signed a pre-contract with Sociedad last week that would keep him at Burnley through the Premier League season before a summer move to Spain.

The striker scored 21 goals in the Championship last season and has made an impact on England’s top flight this year, with 7 goals in 19 appearances.

Sociedad, managed by former Everton and Manchester United boss David Moyes, are 4 points ahead of the drop in Spain. Their striker corps currently holds Alfred Finnbogason and Carlos Vela.
