Aston Villa has completed the signing of English striker Danny Ings from Southampton for an undisclosed fee which makes him their second signing after the loss of Jack Grealish to Manchester City.
Ings, 29, scored 14 goals last term for both club and country and joins summer recruits Leon Bailey, Emi Buendía and Ashley Young at Villa Park.
Head Coach Dean Smith said: “Danny is an outstanding Premier League footballer who has scored goals wherever he has played.
“He is also a top professional with a great character who will be a leader in our squad and a role model for our rapidly developing young Academy players who are now in and around the first team. I am delighted to welcome Danny to our great Club.”
