Debut Fixture
West Ham United vs Everton (Sat, 21/01/2023 - 15:00)

Proven Premier League striker Danny Ings linked up with West Ham United in January 2023, when he joined from Aston Villa.

The Hampshire-born striker scored regularly for AFC Bournemouth, Burnley, Liverpool, Southampton and Villa, registering nearly 125 career goals and hitting the net for England in a friendly win over Wales at Wembley in October 2020.

An efficient and intelligent player with impressive technical ability, Ings’ work-rate and determination mean he also excels at regaining possession in the final third and running with the ball at his feet.



Scored his first Premier League goal of the season with a late equaliser in the 2-2 Premier League draw at home to Burnley on 10 March 2024.
