Burnley Football Club have posted an official statement regarding transfer speculation surrounding Liverpool’s interest in Danny Ings.

The rumours have been rife over the last day or so suggesting Ings could be about to sign for Liverpool in a permanent move. The speculation went on to say that Ings would then be loaned back to Burnley for the rest of the season.

Chief Executive Lee Hoos has now poured water on that idea even suggesting such a loan deal would in anycase be illegal under Premier League Rules.

On the official site in an official announcement today Hoos said:

‘This kind of deal is prohibited by the Premier League under rule V7 which states that a player cannot be purchased and loaned back between Premier League clubs in the same transfer window.

“This type of move would violate Premier League rule V7 regarding transfers so simply cannot happen.

“This is the last time we will be making any comment regarding the player`s future.

“Over the course of the window, the player himself, Sean Dyche and the chairman have made it clear he won`t be going anywhere and we consider that the end of the matter.”

Let’s hope so!!
