Newcastle have long been linked with Burnley striker Danny Ings, along with any number of other clubs.

With his contract ending in the summer, the forward will be moving elsewhere, but where to?

The 23 year old has now came out and given two aspects that he thinks are essential when choosing his next destination.

Firstly, Danny Ings says that it is important that he actually plays football wherever he ends up.

Newcastle would appear to tick that box, especially considering the feeble choices currently available beyond Ayoze Perez.

Second though, we could have a problem.

The Burnley striker says that he also needs to be at a club where the manager and coaching staff will ‘really develop’ him as a player.

Judging by the number of players whose careers have bombed since joining Newcastle in recent seasons, I think that one is going to be a bit of a tough sell…

Danny Ings:

“One thing I do want next year no matter where I am and I don’t know where that’s going to be, is to work with a manager who is going to coach me and really develop me as a player.

“That’s all you can ask for, to learn and be the best you can be.”

You can’t disappear:

“One thing I don’t want to do is go somewhere and…not rot, but suddenly disappear for a while. Somewhere that you don’t really get a look-in.

“It is important that you do get football.”
