West Ham sign Danny Ings from Aston Villa for £15M
West Ham signing Danny Ings from Aston Villa for £15M.
According to reports, West Ham have signed Danny Ings from Aston Villa in a £15million transfer as they look for firepower to escape the relegation zone.
David Moyes‘ team have spent big on the former England international striker as they try to get out of the bottom three.
Ings, 30, has started just eight Premier League games for Aston Villa this season.
Sky Sports report that West Ham have completed a deal to seal his signature and bolster their forward options.
Despite his lack of starts, Ings has managed six goals this term.
He will add some goalscoring nous to Moyes‘ squad, competing with Michail Antonio and Gianluca Scamacca for action.
West Ham have scored just 15 goals in 19 league matches this season. Only Wolves have scored fewer than Moyes’ men.
Saturday’s 1-0 defeat at Molineux saw the Hammers fall into the relegation zone.

Italian international Scamacca, 24, has scored just three Premier League goals since his £30.5m summer arrival.
And Antonio’s luck in front of goal has been even worse, as he has only scored twice in 18 league outings this season.
Recently, the 32-year-old made a suggestion that he might depart the London Stadium.
“If something changes, it changes. We’ve got a striker in and are maybe looking at other strikers because, right now, we’re not doing it.
“If [West Ham] don’t want me or Gianlucca [Scamacca], they are going to try get someone out or they might want to have three options.
“You have to deal with whatever comes your way and that’s how I stand with it. I want to play football, and that’s all I care about.”
