    He is signing a 6 year contract today. Expect a press conference after 12.

    Frankly FLT l do not think of the so called 'bigger' clubs would want him as a starter. It seems to me it will all come down to money, as inevitably it nearly always does.

    I would agree with you Tom. I would think it will be hard to prise Kane from Spurs and Haaland could be a better fit.

    Do people still think Ings isn't giving his all for the club after today? I thought he was back to near his best today. And he worked as hard as ever.

    He has just suffered with injuries. However, he is a model pro so giving it his all sadly means nothing about staying.

    Not saying he will stay. Just that he's been very unfairly treated by some fans on social media.

    Social media though, Tom...

    It's staggering once again looking through the Facebook comments today.

    The saga has taken another twist, with Semmens saying that Ings is likely to sign a new contract, and he thinks he'll stay a Saints for the rest of his career.
    Sounds far more likely Ings will he here next season than Bertrand anyway and no disrespect to Ryan (who has been a wonderful player and servant to the club) but if I had to choose one player to sign that new deal it would be Ings. Signing 2 new left backs will be easier and possibly cheaper than replacing a player of Danny's quality IMO. Look at the figure being quoted for Ivan Toney for example.
