Burnley’s 22 year old England under-21 centre-forward Danny Ings is another young English forward who has caught the eye this season with his knack of scoring goals despite being embroiled in a relegation battle. In 27 Premier League appearances, Ings has netted 9 goals and set up another 4 as his modest Burnley side put up one of the bravest relegation fights in recent Premier League history.
The 22 year old came to the Premier League with a reputation after having plundered goals by the dozen with strike partner Sam Voakes in the Championship. Questions over his quality to come through in the top flight were well and truly answered by the perseverant performances put in by the forward. With his contract up at the end of the season, Premier League clubs are lining him up as one of the shrewdest Bosman buys of the following season. Be it at Burnley or elsewhere, Ings has a future ahead of him that every young English striker could dream of.
