Striker Danny Ings will leave relegated Burnley this summer according to manager Sean Dyche, with a number of clubs interested in the England Under-21 frontman.
The 22-year-old has scored ten goals in the Premier League this season, but has been unable to help the Clarets avoid an immediate return to the Championship.
He and his agent have put the message out that they are looking at pastures new.
And, with his contract running out this summer, Ings has almost certainly decided to move on, with the likes of Liverpool, Manchester United and Real Sociedad all interested in his services.
Dyche said after a goalless draw at Stoke City: “It’s good to see his development, it looks like it won’t continue with us, but we have played a big part in his development.”
He added on BBC Radio 5 live: “He and his agent have put the message out that they are looking at pastures new.
“Every player has the right to run down their contract if they should want to. We will see what happens in the summer.”
Burnley will be due a compensation fee if Ings does move on this summer and former Everton and Manchester United boss David Moyes is still hopeful of tempting the forward to try his luck in Spain with Sociedad.
He told the Spanish media: “I think we’re in with a chance of signing Ings. I can’t confirm whether or not he’ll come, but I’d like him to. I have three or four reinforcements in mind.”
Ings joined the Clarets in the summer of 2011 from Bournemouth and has since scored 42 goals in 129 appearances in all competitions.
His final game for Burnley looks likely to come at Aston Villa next Sunday, with the visitors 3.50 to win at Villa Park, while the draw is available at 3.60 and a home victory is 2.05.
