Ings made 25 appearances for Liverpool, scoring on four occasions, following his free transfer from Burnley in July 2015.
The Champions League finalists will kick off as second favourites behind Manchester City, and they're seen as the Citizens' main rivals for a reason, as they dished out one of only two City defeats of the Premier League season a year ago.
However, Danny Ings looks increasingly likely to stay at Liverpool, at least until January.
Liverpool striker Danny Ings has joined Southampton on loan and will make a £20 million ($26m) permanent switch to St Mary's next summer. Honestly, if you could bottle character and spirit, his would sell worldwide - he is so incredibly positive and full of energy. "It's a fantastic football club who play great football and I'm just happy here", he told Southampton's official TV channel.
It is a very odd feeling saying goodbye to Danny.
"What is clear is that in his time here he had zero luck really, certainly in my time". Born in nearby Winchester, Ings was a boyhood Saints fan and still has family on the South Coast. "The facilities are great and I can't wait to get started".
I wish you all the success in the future and I'll miss you all.
'We have admired him for some time now, not only for his ability, but also his character and personality, which we feel will be an ideal fit in our dressing room.
Ings was being pursued by several Premier League clubs but was holding out for a move to Southampton. "He's obviously a local boy, who gives us another excellent option up front and has a real point to prove".
