When David Moyes moved to Real Sociedad, it was widely acknowledged that the job was something important for Moyes as he sought to rebuild his career after the disappointments at Manchester United. Now The Independent think he will return to the Premier League for a striker, Burnley’s Danny Ings.

Danny Ings is just 22-years-old and his contract with Burnley is set to expire at the end of the current season. This means clubs are now free to offer him a contract but as The Independent state, should a Premier League side acquire him they will be forced to pay upwards on £3m compensation to Burnley. However, foreign clubs will only need to pay a smaller fee, around €270,000 making the deal very tempting for Moyes should Ings be convinced.

Ings began his career on the South Coast with Bournemouth where he graduated their youth academy with 7 goals in 27 league appearances for the first team. Ings had a short loan stay at Dorchester Town but in August 2011, his former Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe paid around £1m to take him to Burnley. Since then the forward has netted 33 leagues goals in 105 matches for Burnley, 6 this season in the Premier League.

It is understood Ings is thinking about leaving Turf Moor when his contract expires but does not what to be a squad member of a bigger club with no playing time. The England Under-21 international could be convinced by Moyes to move to Spain and make a name for himself in one of Europe’s best leagues, will he do it though?
