    Ralph hits the nail on the head here:



    We got lucky with being able to sign Ings for 20mill. It's not worth us selling Danny for a cut price fee this summer, even if he doesn't sign a new contract.

    Given Ings's injury record, I can see him extending with us so he has that security, just in case he was to get another injury.

    Other players in his situation could choose not to sign so they can get enhanced wages/signing bonus by leaving for free, but that would be a big risk for Ings if he got another bad injury. Could find himself injured without a club in the worst case scenario.

    Maybe the delay is he signs a contract with a release clause after the summer transfer window so clubs can't just meet the clause straight away.

    surely you just write it so that is can’t be activated until after a certain date. Or have a much higher one for this summer. Seems standard with the German clubs

    Ilkay Gundogan, a great season for the Champions, scored 12 in 26 games

    Danny Ings, A slightly disappointing season for Saints as they escape relegation, scored 12 in 26 games

    Just saying :bandit:
